  • Cloud-based data storage for primary data made simpler

    While the number of enterprises that store data in the cloud continues to rise, the amount of data that they store there is still low. Today, public cloud storage is still predominantly used for cold data, archiving or object storage. IT managers are still largely concerned about storing primary data in the cloud for two primary reasons: security is no longer in the hands of the administrator, and cloud transaction times are typically slower than reading or writing data on premises. Because primary data often needs to be frequently accessed and can contain some of a business' most sensitive information, to many storage administrators, it may seem like cloud storage should be automatically ruled out. But that’s not always the case -- including primary data in an enterprise's cloud storage repository often results in a bigger return on investment. Additionally, some primary data, such as applications that generate large amounts of Internet of things data, may ultimately make more sense in a cloud infrastructure. And it might make more sense for business processes, too -- primary data often needs to be accessed from a variety of endpoints, while collaboration is increasingly a must for employees. Numerous cloud file-sharing applications now available on the market can make that possible.
