Data and File Server
The demand for data servers has never been so high. Images, documents, emails, databases, videos and other important information — all this has begun to take up too much space on corporate hard drives.
At the same time, businesses now realize the importance of data backup. Some are obliged to do so by the law due to the industry specificity. Others simply store all the information in case it is required in court or in other situations. The situation is aggravated by the fact that today data take up more space than before. For example, videos of medical companies can be of an impressive size. Sometimes they need to share the files with their partners or investors, which turns into a great problem, given the size and number of files.
That is why for many companies, a remote data server has become a true salvation. This option has many advantages:
- They are safe. Remote storage providers take care of the protection of data uploaded to their servers. That is why data leaks are practically impossible.
- They are convenient for teamwork. They can be used to share large files.
- There is no more need to deal with huge stacks of documents. It is possible to store all the documents in the cloud and give access to them to partners and third parties if need be.
- The price of a remote data server is incomparably lower than that of physical media with equivalent capacity.
Data leaks as the main problem for companies.
Businesses all over the world try to keep all the essential information in electronic form on virtual servers. The main reason is that a file server is perfectly protected by the provider from any attacks and attempts to steal information. That is why the company may not worry about the safety of secret data that is uploaded to a virtual storage.
It is worth noting that leaks may occur both in an attack on the storage and by human error. An employee may unintentionally grant system access to a third party or get a virus on their device. The owner of a remote server can control the access of employees to the stored information. This helps to minimize the risk of data leaks by human error.
Free cloud storage has little protection against hacking. The evidence is multiple cases when personal photos and other confidential data were stolen from the cloud and made public. It is much safer to create your own storage on a remote server.
Choosing the right variant of a remote server.
The King Servers provider offers its clients two types of secure remote servers, SAN and NAS.
SAN (Storage Area Network) is a whole system that allows you to connect any external storage devices so that the operating system identifies them as local. It is perfect for large companies that need to store a lot of information. Thanks to its flexible architecture SAN allows constantly increasing the storage size. It is an ideal solution for:
- large banks;
- insurance companies;
- commercial and industrial companies;
- government agencies.
NAS (Network Attached Storage) is simply a remote server that can store a certain amount of information. Its advantages are that it provides access to data regardless of the operating system and platform. It is easy to manage as well, so even a beginner can handle it. NAS offers quite a wide selection of different subsystems, so every business can find a perfect variant.
Such a server can be equipped with different types of disks:
- SATA. It is perfect when files just need to be stored somewhere, and the speed of FTP data transmission is not so important.
- SAS. Such disks are of much higher performance than SATA. It is the best value for money.
- SSD. If you need maximum FTP data transfer speed, you should choose SSD.
NAS is an ideal and rather inexpensive solution for small and medium businesses. Such a server will be a perfect home remote data storage as well. King Servers offers a large selection of tariffs, so every company can choose an option to best meet their needs. And if the storage capacity is no more enough you can always switch to another tariff with a higher capacity server.
