14 September 2020: By 2023, IDC predicts enterprises’ ability to rapidly develop their own digital innovations will be a core competitive requirement. This is as more than half of the worldwide economy will be digitally driven. It is true that data is the new gold but it is not enough to simply know that the gold is there. You need the ability to search for it and refine it. So, while the capability of the modern business to excel is intrinsically linked to data, cost optimised infrastructure, high-availability and scalability is top of mind for CIOs today.

Most organisations around the globe have been affected by the lockdown that resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic, forcing them to rapidly deploy mobile workforce solutions to support remote staff in order to ensure business continuity. South African businesses have been equally impacted and they typically had to make new applications or workloads available to users who can no longer work on-site. This generally requires some changes and additions to storage infrastructure. However, it has given rise to the conundrum of how does a business increase its storage capacities and maintain its environment, if resources are not readily available onsite? The answer lies in artificial intelligence (AI) and self-healing.

In the modern world, data is regarded as the lifeblood of an organisation. Consequently, cyberthreats have taught us that a reactive response to a data breach, regardless of the magnitude of the event, is no longer adequate. All data is important, therefore a more modern and innovative approach needs to be adopted to keeping it safe yet available. As such, organisations need a comprehensive data storage solution that protects data and ensures its availability, providing Business Continuity (BC) if a cyber-attack or other form of data loss occurs.
