With technology advancing at a rapid rate, investing in the right IT solution can be challenging, especially for a small enterprise or branch locations at a larger enterprise that often lack the necessary IT specialist. Important investment questions surface such as how can you be sure that the IT solution you invest in today will serve you well tomorrow? And, does a more affordable solution mean it's less secure, less agile or less scalable?
When it’s time for your small enterprise to invest in storage and data management you want a solution that is simple, smart and highly secure, built for your needs today, and ready to adapt for tomorrow. You also want to align your business with an industry-leading provider that you can trust. Introducing the new NetApp AFF C190 all-flash storage, an affordable, scalable storage solution from the data authority, NetApp.
In a recent survey concerning data storage plans, approximately half of all respondents claimed a data growth of 1-99 TB over the last two years, with an additional 14 percent of respondents claiming growth in the range of 100-999 TB. Fifty-five percent of survey respondents project a data increase anywhere from one to 999 TB over the next two years. Current and projected data growth are significant enough to present a formidable challenge to outdated storage platforms. This means companies need to look at investing in secure, simple, and smart storage solutions.
The increase of ransomware incidents and data theft hacks over the past few years has highlighted the susceptibility of many enterprise environments. Add to that the European Union General Data Protection Regulation, and similar legislature around the world, require significant changes in how companies worldwide manage personal data. NetApp AFF C190 offers a value-priced solution for simple and secure storage. With C190, more affordable does not mean less secure.
