Disaster Recovery is the Top Issue for Organisations says Survey

Research by Storage Expo has found that the top data storage challenge facing organisations is how to implement the right disaster recovery strategy.

More than 80 percent of those surveyed placed DRS at the top of their priority list when it comes to data management.

The second most important issues of concern to the 252 organisations covered in the research was ensuring data security for the business and third was the management of increasing volumes of data, both garnering roughly four fifths of the votes

Centralising data access was a concern for about the same proportion of organisations closely followed by how to store data cost effectively.

Ensuring compliance with the latest data storage legislation and knowing what regulations to comply with are of concern to 68% of organisations while achieving interoperability across existing storage solutions was an issue for 60% of organisations.

And the report concluded that with data storage volumes still growing at over 50% per annum, the need for efficient Storage architecture has never been greater.
