Data growth continues unabated regardless of the economic climate. In fact, the commercial success of many companies is completely dependent on their data. Data must be protected from a variety of threats and often retained over longer periods of time to comply with company and industry guidelines or increasing amounts of government legislation. The bottom line is that ongoing, exponential data growth is proving a challenge for the smallest to the largest of businesses, with the greatest of these challenges being the cost of storing and managing this critical business asset. Simply adding more storage capacity is no longer an acceptable strategy, so businesses are looking at ways of using new storage technologies to keep pace in a sensible way.
