Secure Data Storage Systems
Companies are becoming increasingly dependent on their IT networks, so much so that minimal downtime can cause severe disruption. As your business expands, so do your IT requirements. Additional capacity is required to support an increasing number of users and applications, which in turn results in the need for additional data storage facilities. The more hardware you have, the higher your maintenance and energy bills will be.
Not only that, as companies make more use of Cloud Computing, IT departments face the additional problem of data security. They must ensure that vigilant data protection procedures are in place to ensure their company/customer data is not compromised or stolen.
Our Data Storage Systems
We have been installing and maintaining IT systems and storage facilities for more than ten years and over that time we have developed strong partnerships with all major data storage suppliers. Our experience of the market means we can provide traditional tape or library based systems, as well as DAS, NAS or SAN based storage networks, that are tailored to satisfy the requirements and budgets of business Start-ups, SMEs and large corporates.
In addition to providing physical storage capacity, we also offer help and advice on how to maximise existing resources to reduce overheads, simplify your IT systems and minimize downtime.
We will help you maximise your storage capacity by deploying appropriate facilities, which in turn will reduce costs and deliver a ROI.
By consolidating and virtualising your storage requirements you will:
- Maximise resources – fewer machines are needed overall
- Cut costs - there are fewer physical machines to maintain
- Reduce your carbon footprint - your overall power consumption is lower
- Facilitate business continuity and disaster recovery - data recovery procedures are consolidated
- Minimize downtime by providing resilient, robust storage
Hosted Data Storage
Whether you require a storage system installed locally or fully managed hosted storage facilities, we will recommend the best options and ensure business contingency plans are taken into account. If there is a problem (due to power failure or fire, for example) your business will continues to operate as normal.
Our hosted storage facilities are housed in secure data centres in the UK and comply with the latest EU legislation. They are protected by 24 x 7 CCTV, are maintained by authorised personnel and include full disaster recovery contingencies.
Data Storage Monitoring
We actively monitor your storage systems using proactive data monitoring tools, so if a server (virtual or physical) is approaching maximum capacity, we will automatically redirect data to an alternative storage facility.
