Storage on Demand

SoD – Storage on Demand

Storage on Demand – Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

Storage Space in the Cloud!

Practical experience supports what quite a few studies by well-known market research institutes (Gartner, IDC …) have found: the need for storage capacities will continue to increase rapidly. For many companies, outsourcing data storage to a data center is an interesting alternative – be it to minimize operating expenses or CAPEX, or to increase data security by using an external location.
