Now more than ever, companies need a solution to their data storage needs. As an organization grows, so does its data storage needs, though not always its budget. According to William Simmons, director of business development at MDL Technology, “We’re seeing somewhere between 25 percent and 35 percent increase in the amount of data a company needs to store, replicate and protect.”
Additionally, Entrepreneur reports that several trends are contributing to the need for additional cloud storage:
- Government regulations that require data back-up of certain information.
- Legal reasons that make it necessary to archive emails that date back as far as five years and older.
- An increase in cleverly disguised breach attempts that require a backup companies can access in the event an attempt is successful.
- New software and operating systems that require more storage space with each update.
Simmons added, “Solution partners and technology providers are not making it easy for customers to continue to be supported on legacy products. It drives the price up for the customers and for us.”
MDL Technology selected LightEdge as its outsourced data center for many reasons, including client satisfaction and data protection. “By choosing an outsourced data center, our customers actually get a lower cost of storing data, and they get the best in technology. You know your data and your environment is safe,” said Simmons.
