Data Storage: Protecting and managing information
Data Protection: Life insurance for your business.
When you back up data regularly, you’re not merely protecting information. You’re safeguarding the very existence of your business. Sound like an overstatement? Here are some statistics. A recent study of small businesses that experienced a total loss of computer data for 10 days or more found that only 6 percent of those companies survived. The overwhelming majority — 94 percent — went out of business within two years.
Data loss doesn’t have to be total to be devastating. Even losing a single file — if that file happens to be major proposal that is due today — can result in loss of revenue, perhaps even the loss of a customer. That’s why a data-storage system should be an integral component of your overall technology solution, as vital as your computers, software, and peripherals.
All right. But what exactly is backup? Actually, it’s as simple as it sounds: regularly saving files from your computer or server on separate, specialized media and then storing them in a safe, off-site location.
Korma offers a range of data-storage solutions. To safeguard the files on your computers and/or network servers, you can choose one of our low-cost, high-capacity magnetic tape backup systems. Or a CD-recordable drive to archive or distribute large files, including multimedia and audio files.
Our storage products are aggressively priced, backward-compatible, and available in a range of capacities, and capabilities. That means you can find exactly the right solution for your business. They come bundled with software to help you get up and running fast, and to prevent disasters due to irretrievable data loss.
Data management: Powerful new options for information distribution.
Computer-based data storage also allows you to access, work with, and distribute information more efficiently. The key is finding the right media to store and share information. The most important criteria are storage-capacity and compatibility.
Conventional floppy disks do not have the capacity to store large files that incorporate text, graphics, video, and sound — such as a high-end company presentation. And, although other disk-based media do offer high-storage capacities, they are not industry standards, and many computers simply cannot “play” them. So they are not a good solution for wide information distribution.
CD-rewriteable drives and media give you the ease of use of a floppy disk and the capacity, quality, and reliability of a CD. Now you can easily store up to 500 megabytes of information — 350 times the amount you store on a floppy disk. You save the files to the CD-rewriteable media just as you would to a floppy disk. Sharing the information is easy, too, since most computers now ship with CD drives built in. You can “bring your company” to almost anyone. To view your presentation, all a prospect has to do is insert the CD and double-click.
