Information technology is based on the information provided by the requirements. Every organization has immense amount of information, which has to be maintained properly. These days, IT organizations are growing rapidly and so is the data. Data is the valuable asset for all companies so as to maintain their business credentials. So, it is important for them to store and protect the data. Every company has its own server to manage the information. These servers also provide network connections within organizations and data access on network domains. These are important to maintain the applications, systems, external devices which can manage the massive amount of data.
These days, as the data is growing, it is difficult to manage it for the server with limited capacity. Companies are maintaining storage backup for further use. So they need external storage devices with maximum capacity. These devices can manage heavy workloads and also offer high processing power to access the data. Generally, these devices have the maximum capacity to store large amount of data, when compared to other systems. These are highly effective to reduce the downtime and total cost of ownership (TCO). These devices can convert the operational costs to investment by reducing the physical resources.
There are many types of storage devices such as tape drives, autoloaders, hard drives, solid drives, compact disks, Storwize, system X and many more. These devices can differ from small memory to large memory. There are external and internal devices for any system. Internal devices are common for all types of computer systems as they contain them. They are hard drives, RAM (random access memory), ROM (read only memory) and many other devices. These are also called as primary storage devices. External devices are called as secondary storage devices and consist of hard drives, portable drives, compact disk, solid drives, pen drives, storage boxes, SAN, NAS, DAS and many more.
To maintain the backup storage, external devices are very important, as these have a huge memory to maintain the data. Most of the organizations prefer secondary storage devices, as those provide high speed data access. These are cost effective and easily affordable by the organizations. These days, tape systems are gaining popularity among IT market to help the enterprise in enhancing their business performance and efficiency. Tape systems offer many functions such as recovery, backup, protection, archiving and many more. These tape drives have many enterprise versions like TS 1140, TS 3500, TS 1130, TS 3200 express and many more. Many companies have implemented these tape drives for effective storage.
Storage backup is a requisite for the maintenance of data
