Customers are managing vast amounts of data to satisfy regulatory and compliance needs. This data is generated and manipulated by various applications, leading to the accumulation of data on costly storage devices. This trend continues to grow, necessitating expensive Capex to scale.

NAS advancements in enterprise:
NAS has played a pivotal role in enterprise data storage, facilitating centralized file sharing, backups, application storage, media file management, remote access, and long-term archiving. As the cost of storing greater volumes of data continues to grow, technology is evolving toward hybrid storage environments.

Hybrid cloud storage benefits:
The synergy of on-premises and public cloud storage delivers unparalleled advantages:

  • Dynamic scalability for varying storage needs.
  • Cost optimization by using on-premises NAS storage for baseline requirements and cloud storage for variable workloads.
  • Redundancy strategies, ensuring that critical data is stored both on-premises and in the cloud.
  • Data tiering, optimizing storage for frequently accessed or critical data,  reducing costs with cold data tiered to the cloud.
  • Adherence to regulatory compliance and data governance.
  • Remote access and collaboration support for distributed teams.
  • Flexibility to provision additional resources on demand.
