The business benefits of information availability

You've sacrificed a great deal to get to where you are now, and you want your business to succeed on every level.

You've sacrificed a great deal to get to where you are now, and you want your business to succeed on every level. As a business owner, there’s plenty to worry about. From managing your operations to attracting new clients, ensuring you have the best employees and that they’re happy in their jobs, getting your budget right, being compliant... the list goes on.

In the midst of all this, data protection and storage probably isn’t something you can prioritise easily. Actually, not only are the business benefits of data protection greater than you might think, they’re also easy to achieve when you have the right partner. Let’s take a look at how our high-availability, storage and archiving solutions will benefit your business.

High availability

Business hours are changing all the time and many businesses offer extended access to their customers or are even available 24/7. If your company offers this kind of access, then you can’t afford unnecessary downtime, and you need IT infrastructure that can continue running when disaster strikes.

This is where our high-availability solution comes in, it’s essential for always-on companies whose continuity is critical. This solution guarantees a certain level of uptime, even in the event of a partial infrastructure failure. Your data remains accessible, operations are rapidly failed over to secondary infrastructure and business continues as usual. Find out more about our high-availability solution here.

Storage

Data storage has also changed dramatically in recent years as technology has improved, and there are now several options that offer specific benefits for each business.

  • On the one hand, on-premise data storage offers single tenancy that’s suitable for businesses with stringent compliance obligations seeking to make their data security airtight. Their systems can be purpose-built (although they do require local hardware).
  • On the other hand, data storage in the cloud means sharing infrastructure with other cloud tenants and the benefits include scalability, no maintenance obligations and high reliability. It’s ideal for small to medium-sized businesses that want to access their data anytime and anywhere.
  • Hybrid data storage offers the best of both worlds with unlimited scalability of the cloud and the security of on-premise storage. We offer all three options and you can find out more about our storage solution here.

Archiving

Did you know that up to 75% of your business’s information and intellectual property is stored exclusively in email? Legislation also requires you to hold onto historical financial or client data to remain compliant. Email archives can hold decades worth of emails that can be read but not edited or deleted, making your archive an incorruptible record of your email correspondence.

There are many benefits to getting a good email archiving solution because it will give you a secure, compliant and efficient platform. Be sure that you choose a provider with the skill and infrastructure to assess your organisation and recommend the best archiving strategy. Find out more about our archiving solution here.
