In the past decade many small companies have moved from paper based files to electronic copies and are now heavily reliant on these digital files to function as a business.These files need to be stored somewhere and unstructured data due to organic business growth and lack of housekeeping means that the storage requirements grow exponentially over time quickly.
Managing this data growth means that IT data management and storage, results in increasing costs, time and IT resources needed to manage hardware and file systems.
With the increase of cyber threats targeting smaller businesses which are less likely to have security measure in place , the necessity to secure this data is more important than ever before.
The consumerization of IT means that employees now expect having access to data, anytime from anywhere on any device to be more productive.
Data storage requirements are growing at 40% per year, but IT budgets are only growing 5-7% annually.(Enterprise Strategy Group, 2015)
Traditionally the storage problem is managed by throwing more money for more disks or more servers.In the short term this can address the problem but many organisations do not always have the budget or the IT expertise to manage the software and hardware to make this happen. Traditional storage is now see as expensive and complex to manage and implement.
Your file server could be your single point of failure with all your company data residing in one place. Ask yourself the question how quickly could you bring those systems up?
Ask yourself what the cost of losing your data is to your business?
