Making the right choices for the future
Cloud is the next generation in storage. And there is no question that cloud is great for a number of things: The flexibility and agility inherent in the cloud solutions is a perfect match to modern organizations. But for most businesses, cloud can’t stand alone – they need a physical storage solution, too.
That’s why the best solution for the vast majority of organizations, particularly organizations who base their business on processing large amounts of digitized data, is the hybrid data center.
Things to consider
How should you store?
Deciding that a hybrid data center is the right solution for your business is the easy part – unless your organization is different to most, it will be the best choice.
Once you’ve made the decision to go hybrid, the real fun begins: Choosing the right mix of cloud and physical storage, and the right mix products and vendors.
To make the right choices, you will need to assess and analyze your organizations storage needs – today, and in the future. What are the scenarios and risks you need you need to predict.
The assessment phase is critical, because it is the foundation for the choices you make, when you plan your storage solution
Balance cost, risk and effect
With your assessment and your exploration done, and your options mapped, it’s time to make decisions.
As with all other business decisions, the right choice balances cost, risk and effect.
