The amount of electronic information (e.g., documents, images, emails, videos) Bakersfield organizations produce is staggering. Storing all your digital data in your data center can be expensive. That’s why cloud storage — which often comes at a fraction of the cost of storing the information on-premises — has become increasingly popular.
Storage services include on-demand scalability to keep applications running, snapshots for crash-consistent local and/or offline backup, available off-site backup and/or disaster recovery and high availability storage without disruption due to maintenance/upgrades.
