1/14/2008: Online Storage in Increasing Demand
Online Storage in Increasing Demand
The analysts at IDC forecast that by 2011, online storage providers will expand by 33% every year. This was reported by the online edition of Computerwoche. In conjunction with the Archive Appliance EMA®, it is already possible to use online storage space for the rule-compliant archiving of e-mails and documents.
Constantly growing data volumes make online storage more and more attractive. So far - according to Computerwoche.de - it has mostly been used by home users and small businesses. However, this could soon change. Compliance-appropriate offers as well as recovery tools made the option more interesting for medium-sized companies as well as corporations.
This development is by no means surprising for ARTEC: The concept of the Archive Appliance EMA® has always allowed the use of online storage as a possible variant. EMA® acts as a key that is used to encrypt and decrypt data. Because the data encrypted as Fixed Content using 128 bit AES encryption, the actual storage location is irrelevant.
