Cloud storage is storage space that is accessed through the Internet or a wide area network (WAN) connection. The details vary according to how it's implemented.
Cloud storage appeals to users because it's persistent, easily scalable, and can be sold as pay-per-use. As more companies encounter increasing storage challenges, they need a remedy which is simple to deal with, cost effective, and can meet all capacity and performance needs.
Cloud Storage systems suit a variety of data storage needs, including:
Cloud Storage isn't generally used for temporary storage or high-usage databases. However, it can make sense for companies whose storage needs are unpredictable, or require an inexpensive long-term data store.
No. Cloud Storage solutions have important differences from traditional SAN (Storage Area network) and NAS (network-attached storage) storage. Choosing the right storage plan depends on what type of data is being stored and what it will be used for.
If you are operating a transactional database that drives your business revenue stream, Cloud Storage is not the best solution. Try a SAN storage system.
If you need to maintain e-mail, databases, and/or engineering development, or have complex data protection and compliance requirements, consider a Tier 1 NAS storage system.
