MOVING DATA TO CLOUD
Moving data to the cloud is cheaper, can be expanded endlessly and needs little attention; but how much data can a company realistically park in cloud storage?
It's a popular belief that moving data to the cloud not only takes advantage of the low prices cloud storage vendors can achieve due to their economies of scale, but it can also free a company from the drudgery of buying, commissioning, provisioning and maintaining storage systems. In addition, if cloud storage is endlessly elastic, it can be used without the kind of careful capacity planning in-house storage requires. And if that's not convincing enough, consider that cloud storage providers say they protect our data by replicating it to multiple data centres.
Any move to the cloud must first consider the impact such a move would have on your users and their applications. In many cases, it may be feasible to move much of your data to the cloud, but many key applications are likely to require their data to be kept in-house. Techies can help with these decisions and fine tune your storage needs.
Still, if the data existed in the cloud, local caches and copies of data can be retained and used as needed.
We will conduct a careful assessment of each of your data types, and the applications that access them, to see what options are available for moving data to the cloud and how each of those options would affect the user experience, data protection processes, bandwidth required at each location that needs to access the data and, of course, cost.
