Organization Investing in IoT Must Improve Their Storage and Server Infrastructures
Companies investing in IoT technologies are recognizing the importance of cloud computing. As the connected devices generate a massive amount of data, it is becoming more than essential for organizations to use external data storage source.
Most organizations, across the globe, deploying IoT technology have already increased their storage capacity, server infrastructure, cloud storage, and network edge equipment,
A research conducted by the Voice of the Enterprise mentioned, they conducted a web survey to interview 600 global IoT decision makers. The research concluded that more than 76% of polled using a cloud-server for speedy and accurate data storage. Installing heavy storage devices in companies is not possible. This, in turn, has compelled companies to switch towards a more reliable source to store the data – Cloud Servers.
According to Rich Karpinskim, project manager for the Voice of the Enterprise, “Companies are processing IoT workloads at the edge today to improve security, process real-time operational action triggers, and reduce IoT data storage and transport requirements. While some enterprises say that in future they will do more analytics – including heavy data processing and analytics driven by big data or AI – at the network edge, for now, that deeper analysis is happening in company-owned data centers or in the public cloud.”
Enterprises that have embraced IoT technology believe that cloud servers are best for storage, and are secured than the internal storage devices. So, it is more than essential for companies to switch to cloud servers if they are planning to use big data to run the organization.
Cloud servers are reliable and can store a massive amount of data. Companies with huge storage system can also use it to back up the critical information. As the technology is becoming data oriented, companies must understand the need to improve their storage and server infrastructures.
