Storage Software

Sooner or later, your small business will need more space for data storage. Information in the form of e-mails, documents, presentations, databases, graphics, audio files and spreadsheets is the lifeblood of most companies, and the applications that run and protect your business require a lot of disk space. In addition, a number of trends are fueling our growing hunger for storage:

  • Recent government regulations, such as Sarbanes-Oxley, require businesses to maintain and back up a variety of data they might have otherwise deleted.
  • For legal reasons, many small businesses are now archiving e-mail messages dating back five or more years.
  • The pervasiveness of viruses and spyware requires ever-more vigilant backups--which requires ever-more storage capacity.
  • Each new version of a software application or operating system demands more hard-drive real estate than its predecessor.
  • The growing need to store large media files, such as video, and make them available to users on a network is generating demand for more sophisticated storage solutions.

Storing information and managing its storage is critical to a company's behind-the-scenes success. Fortunately, there are many storage solutions software available.

Online storage or Cloud Storage. Cloud storage is storage space on commercial data center accessible from any computer with Internet access. Data storage programs are usually provided by a service provider. A limited storage space may be provided free with more space available for a subscription fee.  Examples of service providers are Amazon S3, Google Drive, Sky Drive etc.

By backing up your most important files to a secure, remote server, you're protecting the data stored at your place of business. With cloud storage management software you can easily share large files with clients, partners and others by providing them with password-protected access to your online storage service, thereby eliminating the need to e-mail those large files.

Network-attached storage software.Network-attached storage (NAS) provides fast, simple, reliable access to data in an IP networking environment. Those storage software solutions can also offload file serving from other servers on your network, thereby increasing performance. A network storage software system allows you to consolidate storage, thereby increasing efficiency and reducing costs; simplify storage administration and data backup and recovery; and allow for easy scaling to meet growing storage requirements.

Storage virtualization software.The management of storage and data is becoming difficult and time consuming. Storage management tools helps to address this problem by facilitating easy backup, archiving and recovery tasks by consuming less time. Storage virtualization aggregates the functions and hides the actual complexity of the storage area network (SAN).

Storage virtualization can be applied to any level of a SAN. The virtualization techniques can also be applied to different storage functions such as physical storage, RAID groups, logical unit numbers (LUNs), LUN subdivisions, storage zones and logical volumes, etc.

F.A.Q. about Storage Software

Things You Need to Know About Data Storage Management

Know your data. When formulating your data storage management policy, ask the following questions:

  • How soon do I need the data back if lost?
  • How fast do I need to access the data?
  • How long do I need to retain data?
  • How secure does it need to be?
  • What regulatory requirements need to be adhered to?

Don't neglect unstructured data.Think about how you might want to combine multi-structured data from your transactional systems with semi-structured or unstructured data from your email servers, network file systems, etc.

Establish a data retention policy. Setting the right data retention policies is a necessity for both internal data governance and legal compliance.

Look for a solution that fits your data, not the other way around. The storage and backup solutions you choose should be optimized for mobile and virtual platforms, in addition to desktops and laptops -- and provide a consistent experience across any platform, including mobile editing capabilities and intuitive experience across mobile devices, virtual desktops or desktops.

Make sure your data is secure. When managing data within any IT environment,software storage's security has to be the first priority. The data also needs to be encrypted so it cannot be read or used by unscrupulous third parties if it ever falls out of possession or is hacked (which does happen).

What is Self-Storage Software?

A typical self-storage management software is a system that provides ability to manage storage units and their state (available, rented, reserved or disabled), customers with their balance and reporting. Self-storage management software can also have additional features such as point of sale, customer notes, digital signature, insurance, payment processing, accounting, etc.
