How Can Data Storage Management and Virtualization Help Your Small Business?

Businesses today rely on their data about as much as they rely on their employees. A business can live or die depending on how their data is stored and retrieved.

With a proper data storage management solution provided by CDW, you can ensure your data is always available when you need it. CDW can help to Reduce Your IT Data Storage Requirements by 20-40%.

With proper storage management and virtualization solutions your business can benefit tremendously by helping your business to:

  • Improve on efficiencies by decreasing administrative overhead and freeing IT resources.
  • Provide a central system for managing your data.
  • The above two points lead to a reduction in storage maintenance and expenses.
  • Increase better scalability for future growth.

Of course, to achieve the above benefits several technologies are used:

Storage Area Networks (SANs)
A network that is comprised of many storage devices that are designed to manage all your data.
Blade Servers
A smaller version of a traditional server that can easily be housed with other blade servers to maximize the power, cooling, and connectivity of all blad servers connected to a network.
Storage Management Software
Software that provides a central location for managing your data and reducing the complexity of multiple data storage systems by automating data storage.
Archiving Software
Software that automates the movement of data through the data’s life cycle. Such software also provides a single-instance of each file that allows for efficient disk space usage and reduces processing power for backup and storage systems.
E-Discovery Software
Employs advanced search features along with systemic archiving inventories that allows users to quickly search all files for a specific subject.
Data Deduplication
Many files stored on a network are static, and never change, and yet they can be backed up many times. With data deduplication, the number of redundant files are reduced which frees up physical space and the time it takes to perform a backup.
Data Storage Virtualization
If your business will need to employ multiple data storage systems, data storage virtualization can make them all appear as a single storage system.

    Data management is really a big issue specially in the business sector. A company might not notice the data that they are collecting since it’s literally “non physical”. But if you put all those data in papers, you would be surprise that you have already made a mountain of email, reports and etc.

    Thanks for the advice! I am really concerned about my data since I feel that the security of my computer has already been compromised. I was already thinking of the usual reformat and also of avoiding internet connections to protect my data, but if this works well, I’ll do it. Thank you very much!
