These days, information technology is leaving its successful footprints all over the world. There is good scope for IT industry in this commercial business world. Many organizations are working under IT industry to increase their competency and performance. These organizations are producing outstanding performance in various aspects. IT industry is facing many challenges like storing and maintaining their increasing data. As the organization and the business grow, data also grows. In today’s techno world, it is difficult to pace up with increasing data. Most of the organizations are working hard to develop and implement external storage devices to save and maintain the crucial information. It is a major complexity for all organizations to maintain cost effective storage solutions.
Storage optimization is an outstanding solution to increase the efficiency and visualize the large amount of data. It simplifies the management to increase storage recovery and backup. It increases the existing resource utilization and competency of storage growth. It is the cost effective method to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) and to increase the return on investment (ROI). It can reduce the maximum number of physical resources to store the massive amount of information to save the operational cost. It can also minimize the risk of losing data from all kinds of threats and maximizes the usage of the capacity. Most of the organizations are applying storage optimization techniques to lower the cost and faster transporting of data. Mainly there are two categories in these techniques:
Compression: Most of the popular IT organizations are using this data compression technique to reduce the cost and to increase processing power. This improves the storage efficiency and data availability.
Deduplication: The common definition for deduplication is to find same strings of data and restore them. Deduplication is important to maintain the data backup for any organization. It can save and protect the data to increase the storage efficiency.
Most of the organizations store only industrial crucial data and ensure that how long it has to be maintained. All these data compression, deduplication, memory management and many more are included in optimization. Optimization process can transfer the data from one disk to another in case of any disk corruption. It is called as disaster recovery process. Optimization has the life cycle management strategy to move the data from one place to another based on the requirement. It helps all kinds of organizations in storing and protecting the information which is related to business requirements.
