The choice of a proper trouble-free storage technology of a large amount of data is quite a challenge. In Cloudware Polska we made it many times, successfully executing projects for our Clients. The solution included in our offer is dynamically adjusted to increased data number, it is properly secured against loss or breakdowns. Cloudware Polska experts also have a wide knowledge on various manners of data archiving.
The amount of data generated and created by IT systems grows permanently. Every enterprise needs to take a challenge and find the manner of data storage to make it safe and promptly accessible to the users.
We store the information using various technologies on various devices (HDD, SSD, tapes, data in clouds) that communicate with a server infrastructure in many ways. Storage of large data amount results in the situation when consistent mass storage assets management imposes on the IT teams to undertake numerous administrative actions, it also causes problems while scaling the assets and complicates data migration among mass storage devices.
Mass storage areas are much better solution. They are characterized with a high availability, redundancy and handling simplicity. They allow to perform the majority of works from the central website console for management. In professional solutions mass storage is installed in a separated dedicated network of mass storage, in so called SAN (Storage Area Network) granting access to indispensable disc spaces to selected servers.
All the IT solutions are susceptible to all kind of breakdowns. Regardless of applied technologies, it is always the risk of losing data, that may subsequently stop business processes. These are IT units that have to ensure continued and possibly trouble-free organization’s operation with no need of reintroducing and gaining necessary data lost at the breakdown.
Thanks to applying the software for creation of backup copies, we automatize the processes of creation, testing and potential reconstruction of backup copies. While applying strategy for backup copies creation, we record data in many places on various types of carriers thanks to which it is possible to maintain the continuity of IT systems in an enterprise, regardless of a type of a breakdown or a disaster.
Contemporary backup copies systems allow a central management of a backup creation. We achieve high efficiency thanks to the recording/parallel reading (at tape or disc device, to a cloud). We can create backup copies even without stopping business processes. Additionally, in modern environments we use deduplication methods, protecting against unnecessary multiplying of already recorded data.
We also provide a functionality of encryption in able to protect sensitive data and mechanisms allowing an instant recovery (Instant Recovery).
All the data is important for a company but only a part of it should be stored for years. For this purpose we use the process of digital data archiving in which the data rarely used is transferred to dedicated IT archives (tape drives, cloud solutions, proper disc matrices). Devices used for these processes may be slower than those applied on a daily basis and their cost is much lower than the solutions working at production. Yet all the archives must ensure equally high security level of stored data.
Every archiving is adjusted to specific company requirements and IT systems that will benefit from it. We also take into consideration the budget indicated by the Client for creation of a safe digital archive.
Archived data is very often compressed and encrypted (just like backup copies) for protection. Dependently on a selected archiving type, data is recorded locally (slower matrices, disc drives, file servers) or stored in a cloud. Especially this second method has recently gained popularity. Technology development enables creation of your own digital archives to practically any company and additionally saves costs.
Storage and backup
In Cloudware Polska we offer trouble-free technologies for storage of large and growing data amount. The solutions from our offer are properly protected against data loss and breakdowns.
- Storage – Mass storage solutions are characterized with a high availability, redundancy and handling simplicity. They allow to perform the majority of works from the central website console for management.
- Backup – Thanks to applying the software for creation of backup copies, we automatize the processes of creation, testing and potential reconstruction of backup copies. Backups can be managed centrally, even without stopping business processes. Additionally we use deduplication methods and encrypt sensitive data.
- Archiving – We adjust it to specific company’s requirements, IT systems and budget. We ensure a high security level. Data is recorded or stored in a cloud.
