If you happen to be reading this on a mobile device, such as a tablet or smartphone, you already know providing data to any point at any time is central to the way information is now consumed.
It’s no longer just music and photo sharing applications, businesses are interacting with their customers and employees using automated and seamless data delivery models.
Does your organization capture and create data that needs to be retained for a period of time?
Whether data needs to be stored for review or will have some type of analytics run against it to determine trends or abnormalities, if your organization creates content or provides data to others, a data management plan is a necessity.
Does your industry require storing and protecting information for long periods of time? You might be wondering how and where to store this data.
ARDERA develops data management and data storage plans that employ the same methods that are used by leading technology companies.
Data can reside primarily in two places: private and public clouds.
What is the cloud? Ask 10 people and you’ll get 12 answers. The cloud is as much conceptual as it is real.
There are several ways to take advantage of cloud capabilities, and the options promise a more effective, lower-cost way of managing data.
Before making the decision to move your data to the cloud, it’s important to ask- Is your data right for the cloud? Does it include information that is mandated to be protected? What is the goal of using the cloud? Is it for cheap storage or disaster recovery?
Using the cloud for data storage is not without risk, and organizations considering this method should consider all factors in doing so, including the cost and the time required for retrieving.
A private cloud is analogous to client-server computing and assumes that the scale of cloud-based data management and delivery is all able to be contained on the premises of the organization.
A hybrid cloud is a little bit of both.
