In the last two years, the cost per storage unit has fallen by more than 50 percent, but every two years the amount of data collected increases exponentially. Think about all the voice and video recordings, network-based internal communication tools such as Lync, the data gathered from business applications, and from tracking activities and campaigns on social networks – it’s a lot to process. Grappling with how to handle the explosion of data? Don’t worry, you're not alone.
We have gone from measuring data storage requirements in gigabytes to terabytes, and now to petabytes. With data requirements this large, every organization needs more than a simple storage solution. You need a multi-tiered strategy that prioritizes data and makes efficient use of storage space. You also need a reliable backup plan that leverages private cloud best practices and the power of public cloud offerings.
The server consolidation ratios are just phenomenal, and the IBM hardware allowed Compugen to reduce the space consumed to a single rack, with space left over.
There are many ways to bring your storage requirements under control, which is why a needs assessment is always the first step. Because every environment is different, we will design a custom plan based on your requirements and use industry-accepted techniques such as vaulting, tiering and data de-duplication. Our storage team will implement it, test the backup systems, and make sure all data can be recovered to meet business objectives. It’s like insurance – you never want to use it, but you sleep better at night knowing you have a plan in place.
