Masses of new data is being generated by businesses and individuals daily - in fact. by 2025, it's been predicted that the global datasphere will contain around 163 Zettabytes - that's a trillion gigabytes! The explosion of data is creating a challenge for many organisations: how and where are they going to store data they collect?
For the majority of businesses, the optimum storage soluiton is a combination of storage software and hardware, and with a wide range of options available, you can create a storage solution that's truly tailored to your business.

If you'd prefer a hardware storage solution that doesn't require you to compromise on speed, IBM's comprehensive all-flash portfolio is an excellent way to accelerate your applications. With increased density compared to traditional hard disk drives, flash solutions can provide you with higher speeds without having to take up more room in the data centre. This should enable you to meet the real-time demands of your cloud, mobile and social enviroments - delivering greater operational efficiency, a more responsive customer experience and competitive edge.
When it comes to storage, hard drive storage systems are the tried-and-tested option, as many businesses have been using hard disk drives (HDD) for years. You can store a lot of data on HDDs and for a relatively low cost.
However, for businesses that have huge amounts of data, tape storage ca be the most affordable option. Many use tape storage for backup and recovery purposes, and there are a wide range of tape solutions to suit your various business needs, from virtual tape libraries to drives and autoloaders.
