Small and medium businesses, as well as home users, need to store a lot of data. The data is a mix of video, music, photos, receipts, reports, articles, links to web pages, and sometimes even security footage. Many small businesses are turning to cloud storage as a way to handle their storage needs. Cloud storage can improve small business owners' capability to access, share, and protect their company's data, particularly when they have a limited capacity—or desire—to manage on-site technology resources. To be sure, moving data to the cloud brings its own set of concerns, ranging from security (vulnerability to breaches) to availability, but the cost and convenience benefits of cloud storage are such that an increasing number of small businesses are taking the plunge.
Whether you choose cloud storage powered by Intel® storage solutions or implement your own Intel® storage solution architecture, our technologies will simplify your digital life and access to important data anytime, anywhere and on any device.
Hybrid clouds dramatically improve performance, keeping most active data on-premise in local network, and transferring less used data to cloud-based storage to retrieve as needed. Intel® storage solutions for Intel® Hybrid Cloud bring together the best of private and public clouds, offering small- and medium-sized businesses the ultimate choice in storage solutions.
Digital content is overtaking DVDs as the primary way of consuming movies, TV, and music. Connect all of your devices through a centralized media server to provide sharing, backup, and streaming throughout your home or small business.
So much of our daily lives include digital content. From local cable or satellite providers supplying digital video recorders (DVRs), to streaming on-demand and live content, to purchases of video and music on our computers, the amount of digital storage in our homes continues to grow. Through a personal cloud gateway powered by Intel® technologies you can help protect your data from security breaches, hardware failures, and unnecessary charges for cloud storage. When you connect your home to the cloud, you can keep data that is frequently used on a storage device at home and leverage the cloud for data archive and retrieval. In this manner, you can realize the best of both worlds―cloud and personal cloud storage.
