Refresh your storage

The new GDPR guidelines state that keeping hold of data that you don’t use or need could be breaching the regulation. A storage refresh could help with compliancy by getting rid of old or un-used data. With the latest storage solutions having features like self-encryption and end-to-end data protection, you can be confident your data will be safe.

Why refresh?

Storage is one of the most important aspects of your IT infrastructure. It can have a major impact on the performance of your devices and systems. Refreshing your storage could make your devices and systems quicker and more reliable, for a more attractive price than a full IT refresh. It’s an easy way to give your old systems a new lease of life.

  • Improve performance
  • Boost customer satisfaction
  • Help with GDPR compliancy
  • Improve security
  • Increase durability

What type of storage do I need?

External hard-drive

These can be quickly added and removed from a desktop or laptop PC. It’s a great way to store files separately. External hard drives typically have high storage capacities and are often used to back up computers or serve as a network drive.

Solid-state drive

SSDs are a great way of storing and protecting your business data where it lives – on your device. They are known for quick boot-ups and app launches, boosting productivity in demanding business environments. And an SSD has no moving parts like a HDD does, so your data will stay safe even if you drop your bag, or pack your laptop away in a hurry.

Network Attached Storage

NAS storage works like an external hard drive, but it’s mounted to a network instead of an individual device. This means multiple users can securely access your files, even those who aren’t in the office, as long as they have an internet connection. And NAS storage solutions are a great alternative to cloud storage if you’re concerned about privacy.

Enterprise Storage

As your organisation grows the need for more and more storage space becomes necessary. Fully scalable options can be configured to suit both your need and budget. Enterprise options work in the same way as smaller solutions but are more reliable and allow a higher usage level without slowing down your system.
