With the ever-increasing amounts of information businesses are dealing with in the current environment, many are turning to new solutions to help them manage and store this more efficiently.
In fact, services such as hosted data centers are becoming more popular than ever, while the rise of technologies such as advanced mobile gadgets are leading to more data being stored outside of firms' on-site networks.
Increasing range of options
A recent study by Symantec highlighted the cloud and mobility as two key reasons for the growing sprawl of information. It observed 46% of global business data is now stored away from firms' on-site data centers, with 14% kept on smartphones and tablets and 23% stored on the cloud.
Therefore, if you're looking for dedicated servers to help you manage your network, you need to think carefully about how and when workers will be accessing information and applications.
Symantec observed: "With mobile devices and cloud giving employees access to information from nearly anywhere, we're also seeing more sensitive information living beyond the traditional IT boundaries."
Challenges must be addressed
Key reasons for this include the lower costs associated with cloud solutions as opposed to on-site data hosting, as well as improved agility. Using hosted services means businesses can easily react to new demands by upgrading their systems and bringing in new capabilities without major capital investment.
However, Symantec warned there are several challenges that must be addressed if this is to be a success, as there are issues such as security that need to be considered when information is stored and accessed remotely.
As well as ensuring data stored remotely is protected, it's important you're able to find the details you need quickly. The security firm observed many companies have struggled with a non-centralised infrastructure that makes it hard to track down the right data. Therefore, you need to have systems in place that ensure staff can find what they're looking for as easily as possible.
