Data storage solutions for today
Data storage devices are used to store data as removable data storage devices or non-removable data storage devices. Data can be in the form of files, databases, images, digital video, audio etc. Media storage devices also help organizations meet consumer demands for continuous access to rich media content. When looking for a media storage solution, you need to keep security and damage protection in mind.
Personal file storage devices allow individuals to have personal backup, file access, or file distribution. Users can upload their files or documents and share them publicly or keep them password-protected. Personal files storage services are economical as compared to off-site backup services that are not typically affordable for individual and small offices. Online files storage services offer space on a gigabyte basis and may include a bandwidth cost component as well.
Many hosting services do not place any limit on how much space your account can consume. Some files storage services require a software download which makes files only available on computers which have that software installed while others allow users to retrieve files through any web browser. Many webmail services also offer files storage in the form of an online drive.
For many businesses, off-site tape storage continues to be a practical and cost-effective solution for backup and archiving. When storing large amounts of data, tape storage is less expensive than other data storage options. As of 2011, the highest capacity tape cartridges can store up to 5 TB of data. Tape storage is removable, scalable, portable, fast and reliable. Tape costs up to 10 times less than disk storage.
Back-up tapes at document management centers are protected by keycard access, CCTV video surveillance and highly trained, rigorously screened staff. For information that does not require immediate retrieval, archival tape storage solutions provide a great solution for protecting business data.
