Maximize Storage Density with Aberdeen NAS Storage

Data centers in enterprises and medium-sized companies are nearing full capacity. With unprecedented data growth and longer data retention periods, the amount of information that organizations must store is exponentially increasing, yet most organizations have neither the budget nor the available space to accommodate large numbers of new network storage servers.

Aberdeen offers a solution: network-attached storage, or NAS storage, that offers maximum density at a low cost per TB, enabling organizations to more effectively address their data storage challenges.

The Problem of Rapidly Growing Data Volumes

The inundation of corporate data shows no signs of letting up. The rise of digital technologies over the past few decades is causing corporate data to reach unprecedented volumes and levels of complexity. From Internet search and email to social media, Big Data and the Internet of Things, data is being created at an ever-faster rate and at the same time, data files are larger than ever. To complicate matters even more, organizations are retaining data for longer periods to satisfy regulatory requirements, legal best practices and to enable analytics with a deeper look into historical trends.

The end result is a doubling of corporate data worldwide roughly every 14 months. Unfortunately, most companies are unable to increase the footprint of their data center at the same pace, creating significant data storage issues for IT teams everywhere.

NAS network-attached storage can help solve part of this problem by providing easy-to-implement, scale-out storage capacity. But the question remains of how to deploy this storage technology in data centers that are quickly reaching their limit.
