Data solutions cover a wide territory. Data comes in many forms – emails, text files, presentation, spreadsheets, voice mails, accounting records, images, video and music, website content, and even physical data such as historical printed records. Certain industry also face regulations as to how information can be used, stored, and secured. Storage and associated costs can be high.
Data solutions also involve the cost of running and maintaining equipment, including energy costs. International Data Corporation (IDC), a global provider of market intelligence, estimated that in 2006-2010, for every dollar spent on computer hardware, another 50 cents was spent on energy. Smart data management and storage is one way companies can reduce their IT costs.
The cost of IT system downtime can be devastating and the loss of critical data can literally bankrupt a small business. Remarkably, 40% of all small businesses don’t back up their data and 25% of users fail to back up their personal computers and devices. Furthermore, instant access to data – whether in the office, on the road, or working remotely – is essential to today’s fast-paced businesses.
