Whatever the industry, the type or the size, every company has a common impending need: to store its data in a stable and secure way. In fact, data acquire greater importance day after day, becoming part of what is the real business assets and as such has the need to be safeguarded at best. In a world where cyber attacks increase exponentially and improve day by day, protecting sensitive business data becomes the priority. In addition, with the recent Data Protection Act (GDPR), the stringent requirements for management procedures, transparency, documentation and user consent require additional efforts and changes from companies.

When you want to ensure that your data is maintained and, above all, manage its growth, object storage is an essential model for all companies, as it allows the storage of high volumes of unstructured data.
Object storage, often associated with the public cloud, offers many possibilities of access via the web or via API that are certainly an advantage in terms of predisposition to the cloud, also the geographical distribution, redundancy and data protection are more performing than other older methods.
In reality, an important alternative to consider is object storage on-premise, which allows the development of private or hybrid environments. In this configuration there are the advantages of the option in public cloud but, on the other hand, the data remains physically within the organization.

In Bancadati we are well aware of the challenges and difficulties that a company constantly faces because of the doubt between on-premise, cloud and hybrid-cloud, in fact we have acted accordingly by making all the options available individually or by combining them.

  1. The public cloud is a good option for companies that want to have a solution that is made available quickly and with ease of configuration and management without making hardware investments.
    This option allows for a pay-per-use model that allows monthly spending based on actual capacity used and of course allows for the possibility of increasing space as needed.
  2. An on-premise solution, on the other hand, requires an initial investment for the hardware infrastructure and, with it, the need to manage and maintain it; however, it offers the certainty of having the data within one’s own organisation and the same ease of use and scalability.
  3. In addition to these two options, Bancadati now offers a third way, the hybrid managed, i.e. having an on-premise infrastructure for its storage solution but leaving the management entirely to Bancadati as a professional service.
    This model perfectly combines all the technical and cost advantages of the two previous opportunities and can be understood as an extension of the hybrid cloud reducing its management costs.

Bancadati works daily to improve its services, ensuring maximum flexibility for each individual customer in the field of digital data storage, to create an ad hoc solution that reflects their needs.
