"Who cares about storage?"
"I don't even know where my files are!"
"We keep our files on the C:drive, so we know they are safe!"
Comments like these are not uncommon, but if you depend on your data in your business you are already past that point. When you have multiple users, or even multiple groups of users, you normally work with shared storage for your files. This means a file server of some kind. Maybe a shared storage space on a single desktop computer, maybe a server in the office, perhaps even a dedicated NAS server.
But what are the problems with storage?
If you can recognise any of these issues, we can help you manage your storage and develop an expansion policy for your system. This will avoid any outages or loss of critical files. If you need universal access to your data, we can put them in the 'cloud' for you. We can show you how to encrypt your data (making it secure) on your server and use VPN tunnels (Virtual Private Networks) to move your data around and store it securely.
|1.||Quota driven file storage||Don't let a few users hog your whole storage space|
|2.||In-transfer and in-situ encryption||Protect your data from theft|
|3.||RAID (redundant array of independent disks)||Protect your data storage from disk failure|
|4.||NAS (network attached storage)||Make your data accessible to local network users|
|5.||Expandable||Expand your data storage space without having to duplicate the previous storage|
|6.||Accessible over the Internet||Gain access to your data whereever you are - safely!|
|7.||Back-up||Protect your data against accidental loss - back it up!|
|8.||iSCSI||Create very large and expandable storage space easily|
|9.||S.M.A.R.T.||Powerful monitoring of hard disk condition and failure alert feature - makes your sleep more peaceful!|
|10.||Cloud-based||Put your data storage where your people can access it - safer and with more uptime than you can in the office!|
We use FreeNAS, Openfiler and a host of other technologies running virtualized on Linux servers to achieve fast, money-saving results for your organisation.
