Has Your Storage Turned into a Three-Ring Circus?

RRAdministrator Blog

There are circus performers who have an easier balancing act than some IT managers responsible for determining the amount of required storage capacity for their department. With needs changing quickly and procurement timelines lengthy, organizations can find themselves tying up unnecessary capital purchasing storage that goes unused if they guess high or scrambling to keep up if they lowball. It’s an exhausting act that can hamper productivity, overtax staff and hamstring positive results.

Working Without a Net

Current estimates say the world’s populations create nearly 2.5 quintillion bytes of data per day. As our big data capabilities and needs expand, what’s the best way to keep up?

Purchasing the equipment necessary to enlarge on-site storage capabilities can present budgeting and space problems and the likelihood of being stuck with outdated equipment. Leasing options usually result in long-term contracts and technology that could become incompatible with newer equipment by the time the agreement terminates. And whatever infrastructure and hardware is procured needs to align with application performance requirements and work with legacy systems, while also considering security and scalability. The technological landscape is changing constantly and rapidly, which makes locking yourself into purchased equipment or long-term leases a high wire act on so many levels.
