There are many reasons why businesses upgrade their storage setup, a lot of the time it’s simply a case of needing more space to put data in; on other occasions however, needs can be more complex and specific to each particular business.
In 2015, businesses aren’t as simple as they were twenty years ago: they aren’t neccessarily tied down to one building, or any building at all, they may not have full time staff, and employees may not work from the same location, or even at the same time.
Today, businesses can be temporary, they can grow at rapid rates, and thanks to new open-source software, they can operate on a shoe-string budget. With all this in mind, it means that the demands of modern companies have changed, so as well as the standard reasons for requiring storage solutions, here are a few reasons why businesses may choose to outsource their data storage.
This is the classic case of a business rapidly expanding and needing more storage for their data. When businesses experience a growth spurt, it is often a fast-paced, exhilarating, and sometimes frightening time for all involved. In times of growth, companies will find themselves with new staff, new projects and new customers; all of which can throw a steady business off-balance, so taking time out to accomodate the new growth can help make things run smoother on an already-bumpy ride.
Back-ups and Security
For businesses with highly valuable or sensitive information, securely backing-up and storing data is crucial to the point where in-house storage may not be big or secure enough. When investing in data storage, security is as important as size, and trusting in the knowledge and experience of storage experts means that businesses can receive a service that extends to much more than just extra space.
Outsourcing data storage is also cost-effective, with many businesses finding that extra equipment simply costs too much to bring in-house. Data storage that is outsourced will come from an established provider who can quickly and easily implement exactly how much storage is needed, no more, no less; resulting in reduced overheads and less waste.
