    How to Get the Best Price for Data Storage Solution

    If you are one of the people responsible for your company’s purchases and/or managing its budget, you will probably agree that additional savings are always welcome! What is not so obvious about it is the fact that, in some areas, determining cost-effectiveness is very hard at the first glance. Data storage is definitely one of such areas, which per se is also an incredibly broad topic. Today we put together the most important things you should know before building or extending a company’s data storage architecture.

    Data Storage Challenges & Threats for Your Budget

    Data Safety

    The best way to save money is to avoid unnecessary expenses. The most basic way to do that is by politely following legal regulations. If you respect the law, you don’t risk paying fines. Using data storage in the wrong way can make it harder for you. If you keep your clients’ data, you must do it safe to ensure data privacy. If you pass your data to a third-party data storage service provider, it comes with a threat. You can sign a contract that ensures data safety and availability in case of any disruption, but if the servers are hacked and the data stored on them leaks, you will be in trouble anyway. You might say – fine, but it was the fault of the data storage provider, who did not protect the data well enough. Not really – this data wouldn’t have leaked if you hadn’t shared it in the first place. You take full responsibility for the data of your clients and should grant them maximum data protection. This way, you are also protecting your company.

    Employee Workflow

    Time is also important. As we state in our Backup Brochure – “Time is money, and so is the Data”. There are a number of reasons to support this quote, so let’s take a look at the most important from a financial perspective.

    Firstly, it refers to the time that each employee spends on their tasks. By using different tools, they can do their work faster and more efficiently, which can raise their overall profitability for the company. There are options for buying compound products containing a few tools in a single solution (for example our Open-E JovianDSS). It is a great way not only to make the work of your colleagues easier, but also to get a single solution from a single provider, which results in complex and fast support.

    Losing Data = Losing Money

    Constant and uninterrupted access to your data is something that supports the aforementioned workflow, but there is more to it. Do you know what the costs of losing company data are? Let’s take a look at some example estimated costs depending on the scale of the business.

Snapshots empower your data storage administrators with the ability to create images of the data system and go back to it if any disruptive event on the level of the data system occurs.
