Webinar - Cloud Storage Solutions Make it Easy for Businesses of Any Size to Manage Data
By Laura Stotler, TMCnet Contributing Editor
We are in the age of big data. Businesses of all sizes produce volumes and volumes of data on a daily basis. Some of it is extremely important and needs high levels of security and availability, while some is considerably less important and does not need to be accessed instantaneously.
Managing, securing and storing this data poses a challenge – for businesses of all sizes. Even small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are beginning to discover that their in-house resources, technology and staff can't efficiently keep up with soaring data growth rates. The answer, as is the case with many technology challenges, is to look to the cloud.
Scale-Out Cloud Storage has been a driving force in the uptake and popularity of cloud technologies and solutions, and many managed service providers (MSPs) are offering this as a value-added option to their customers. Whether you have a dedicated network topology, a cloud model or some type of hybrid configuration, cloud storage offloads the burden of storing, securing and managing data.
MSPs and cloud service providers can help your business plan your migration to the cloud, along with managing data and assigning access priority to specific sets of data. They can also ensure your data is properly secured and backed up, and offer service level agreements (SLAs) and customer care assurances to support their service claims.
savvisdirect, a CenturyLink company, offers a variety of Cloud Storage solutions designed to let customers store large amounts of data cost effectively. The company uses a secure, object-based cloud infrastructure connected to the public Internet that provides easy customer access and 100 percent automated replication. Additional benefits include a management console, redundant storage and 99.95 percent storage uptime guarantees.
Product managers from savvisdirect will be speaking at an upcoming webinar titled "Managing Your Data Growth with Cloud Storage." The event will take place on May 29 at 2 p.m. EDT, and will cover everything from planning the migration of data files to the cloud to multiple use cases for Cloud Storage solutions.
