Enterprise solutions provide data storage solutions to businesses depending on the size and needs of the organization. The storage addresses block, file and object storage of a business.
Creating a data storage solution depends on the exact needs of a business, what a business exactly does, what it wants and what it needs. The common need is to see that the business has security around the data and that its database is secure round the clock. A data storage solution should also be able to retrieve all the data if there is a mishap and it is lost. Custom hardware and flash memory are essential in assisting and helping accelerate the analytical applications. There is increased storage in re-writable flash memory chips and it gives the business more support for concurrent applications and ultra-fast response.
Cloning helps an organization to leverage its advanced services. It automatically helps copy, backup and transfers the storage to another site which can be used to recover in case of disaster recovery. Clones are complete copies of the data. It helps to speed up the development; it also has snapshot capability which can be archived.
Data storage solutions help create many copies which can be used for different reasons like testing, reporting, backups, staging, and development.
Key Information Systems helps you replicate data with minimum loss. It requires network bandwidth; however but there is a limitation in terms of distance. Hence, users can, instead, choose asynchronous periodic replication as it will create copies across vast distances. This solution helps a business with remote backup, migration services, and log shipping.
File system compression helps to optimize a business’s data storage solutions by reducing the storage footprint of data by compressing each file written. NAS-network attached storage and block storage compression is constituted into the storage. It functions between the storage device and network and performs fast loss and transparent storage compression. This increases the NAS and SAN capacity by 300 percent.
Encryption is based on data storage solutions. The encryption can be run through the storage network. Another method is to have dedicated storage shelves to encrypt and decrypt data.
In-memory storage is a great solution for businesses that are heavily transaction-based. This requires flash storage as it speeds up the database indexes and has better query performance. It also helps in desktop virtualization. Many clients load boot profiles into this memory for a faster login as it allows the largest number of users.
