Data Protection & Management: Driving Business Continuity

HOW DATA PROTECTION DRIVES VALUE

Data Protection Is Essential for Business Success


Your business relies on data as today’s opportunities are won and lost based on the quality of information that decision makers have available. Whether it’s transactional data that generates revenue, operational data that drives business efficiencies, big data that delivers future value and intelligence, or fast data that enables actionable insights in real time, uninterrupted access to captured data is paramount. The loss of access to any data has the potential to cripple any company.

By deploying an effective data protection scheme, organizations can help ensure 24/7 data access, drive faster decision making, accelerate product innovation, develop new revenue streams, and deliver business continuity, so the data center will continue to function regardless of hardware failures, localized or widespread service outages, or even natural disasters.

$300,000+ Per Hour

81% of enterprises say the cost per hour of downtime exceeds $300K on average1

35% More Access

35% respondents of a survey would access old files and photos more if they had easy access2

$125B by 2023

The global data protection market is expected to reach $125.8 billion in revenue by 2023 at a 14.1% CAGR3

Being able to respond to market opportunities at all times yields a considerable competitive advantage. Even small amount of downtime can have compounding effects that can bring business to a halt. As the amount of data stored by each business continues to multiply, having a robust data protection regime is essential for long-term business success.

MANAGING THE DATA EXPLOSION

Traditional Storage Systems Are No Longer Sufficient for Protecting Petabyte-Scale Data


All sized businesses are faced with massive volumes of digital content being generated from much larger assets that continue to grow in size and density. They are further challenged by how to efficiently manage and extract value from it. Petabyte-scale storage architectures and new data-intensive formats are required to address the creation, manipulation, and transmission while also enabling data to be mined in the future, with the hope of finding additional intelligence or value. As such, all sized businesses are looking at object storage and cloud to provide a viable solution.

INDUSTRY EXPERTS AGREE

Data management is hard, and with the massive growth of data this task is becoming even more difficult. But, data growth is also making data management an imperative. Organizations need to figure out a way to better manage their data so that it is always available yet stored cost effectively. Because if they can’t, that data, the very thing they are counting on to drive their business forward, will bury them.
