If your business still uses a local solution for storing unstructured data, such as a NAS or local file servers, it might be time to consider modernising your data storage infrastructure.
Modernising storage infrastructure is a journey that companies must tackle as their local and unstructured data grows exponentially. When businesses compare the solutions available to update and secure their storage infrastructure and take their remote and branch office needs into account, the IT department will find several options. The common approach today is for each branch office to work within its own silo, and manage files on general-purpose file servers or network-attached storage (NAS) devices independently from one another, which can get expensive while also providing a fragmented and isolated level of service.
Furthermore, outdated storage infrastructure methods will not suffice in today’s working environment. Businesses have gone global, and employees are mobile. Files are constantly being created, changed, and shared by users who are no longer confined to offices.
NAS devices play a role in modern working environments by acting as centralised repositories for storing, backup, and archiving unstructured data. However, NAS is costly compared to cloud storage offerings, not only in terms of stored data but also because replicating files to an off-site NAS forces enterprises to pay for two storage appliances.
With that in mind, how can an enterprise organization that wants to use cloud storage do so without compromising the performance or privacy of its data?
