Safe business data with cloud storage capabilities
Posted by AllmaJess on January 22nd, 2014
Business data storage is always a challenge for the people in charge of IT. In this competitive environment any business data, if it lands up in the hands of a competitor, could spell doom for a business. And despite all measure being taken data security remains an issue with most organizations. If someone outside doesn't steal data then someone inside does. You know what's the most sensible thing to do? It is best to opt for cloud storage. Add virtual desktop solutions to the cloud package and not a single byte of data could be stolen by anyone.
Cloud computing has brought in benefits for everyone that has used it. With cloud storage businesses have moved on to the next level in technology adoption. The formula is simple - instead of storing data on physical servers businesses are now storing data in virtual server that are in the cloud. Do you understand what this means? This means that businesses can now invest less on hardware and also get total data security. The server machine is virtual and it is maintained by a third party vendor. Employees of an organization don't even know where the data is stored. They save data and it gets stored somewhere. Hence, manipulating the data becomes well nigh impossible.
Using a cloud storage server also means that data can be accessed from anywhere. Those businesses that encourage their employees to work from home benefit from such arrangements. Employees can access the server using their credentials and work without coming to the office. For those companies that want to reduce the cost on office space using cloud storage is a wonderful option.
Data security and workstations performance can be further enhanced with the use of virtual desktop solutions. Virtual desktops have become very important these days. Over the internet employees can access all the data that they require and all the software applications they need to do their work. However, no data is saved on the hard drive of workstations. Any data saved is saved on the server that is in the data centre of the service provider. The server can be a physical machine or it can be a virtual server residing in the cloud.
The other big advantage of virtual desktop solutions is that workstations can perform optimally because they don’t get clogged by storing applications, even those that are required for their work. And the server can be accessed from anywhere as we saw in the case of cloud. Office space can be saved and data can be backed up on the server. The solution also offers total mobility and scalability. For businesses that expect expansions these solutions have to be used by them.
In this age of hackers it is almost impossible to keep data safe. Someone somewhere is always trying illegal means to access business data. However, with solutions like cloud storage and virtual desktop solutions data is always safe. Even hackers cannot access the data because they find nothing when they hack into systems.
