Tangible Storage, (www.TangibleStorage.com), officially announces its support for American Express Small Business Saturday (November 24, 2012).
It is often stated that the future of all industry exists within small business and especially within the hearts and minds of small business owners and entrepreneurs. But there are challenges to running the small shop. Apart from the obvious timeless difficulties of raising capital, managing payroll and scheduling duties to employees, today’s business owners need to be familiar with a wide range of online digital technologies on the Internet and elsewhere in order to remain competitive in their respective markets. Everything from simple tweets to email to streaming movies is being categorized, tagged and stored for longer and longer retention periods partly due to stronger regulatory and compliance standards but mostly because the demand for media consumption has grown sharply.
While there are a few exceptions, the data storage market is composed of three main segments:
a) Enterprise Storage Area Network (SAN): Very good scalability with good speed and data capacity but also very expensive to acquire and maintain. Many types require IT organizations to oversee operations.
b) Consumer Network-attached Storage (NAS): Very good price (inexpensive) but with limited speed, scalability and data capacity. Easy to own and easy to operate but upgrades usually mean replacing the entire device. The logical combination of devices for aggregate storage is generally quite complicated.
c) Public Cloud storage: Excellent price but speed is limited to the Internet connection and its uptime. Good scalability and data capacity, easy to operate. Potential data privacy issues if data is not properly handled and encrypted.
Tangible Storage understands that most businesses especially small businesses do not fall neatly into one of the above three groups. Indeed, small flexible companies would probably be better served through combinations of the qualitative advantages from all groups. By supporting the needs of small business, Tangible Storage delivers SAN products that provide good scalability, speed and data capacity while remaining affordable to purchase. Logical combinations of multiple devices simplify the task of aggregating storage. These systems are easy to manage with GUI based Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) Management software which can be configured to automatically alert administrators via email in the event of hardware failures.
Tangible Storage is an authorized US distributor of Storage Area Network (SAN) appliances, equipment and services based on the open standard – ATA over Ethernet. The company is in business to help and empower customers by supplying and delivering quality data storage products with enterprise grade features at reasonable prices.
