Problems with Traditional Storage
Rapid technological advancements are causing data to become bigger and bigger for integrated workflows. Crucial business decisions are based on the increasing amounts of data. There is an important need for the expansion of data for the survival and excellence of businesses. Such a dire need has resulted in the traditional data storage options becoming obsolete.
- Investment of Time: By using the traditional storage options, which may or may not involve cloud storage and backup, organizations were tasked by doing all the work on their own. Experts were required to evaluate the options of storage and then choose an appropriate vendor from the options. The work of the organizations did not end here and they were further burdened by the negotiation of price of the hardware and software equipment to be used. At the end came the work of installing, testing and implementing the entire hardware and software.
- High Financial Investment: Using the traditional storage options result in much more expenses than using the modern technologically advanced storage options. A lot of financial resources are spent on the initial buying of the hardware and software. Organizations are forced to over-buy because of the inability to repeat the same expensive and time-consuming process all over again.
- Lack of Scalability: Traditional storage is inflexible, rigid and does not allow businesses to be agile. Businesses are incapable of increasing storage space immediately which results in slow operations of business resulting in loss of revenues. With rapid advancements in technology, businesses are always seeking more clientele which results in the demand for greater storage needs overtime. The growing storage needs are not met by the traditional storage options. Traditional storage options put restrictions on you as a customer because you know you will be stuck with the amount of storage; or you can bear the increased costs to increase the storage.
- Pressure of Increased Commitment: With businesses being stuck in long term contracts with their vendors, traditional storage causes customers to be bound with one capacity of storage. The contractual commitment with the vendors results in limitations on the amount of storage. The customer is at a disadvantage by not having a centralized backup and recovery solution; what will the customer do if the actual future storage growth surpasses the predicted future storage growth?
