BOULDER, Colo. & LONDON, U.K., Sept. 23 -- Spectra Logic today announced the results of an independent survey conducted by market research agency, Vanson Bourne. The survey, completed in August 2013, includes responses from 300 U.S. and U.K.-based IT decision makers and reveals how organizations are currently managing long term data storage and the challenges associated with long term data retention. The results highlight that the majority of IT decision makers at large organizations use manual processes to analyze and migrate stored data, rarely delete data, and add more storage when necessary.
Organizations across a number of sectors, including media and entertainment, life sciences, medical imaging, oil and gas, government, and video surveillance, are choosing to retain much of their data for extended periods. A number of factors influence the trend toward extended data retention, including regulatory, compliance or governance requirements, as well as the opportunity to repurpose and monetize information in the future.
The survey revealed that:
“The survey findings illustrate the need for new storage options that allow organizations to reduce the time spent manually managing long term storage and easily interface with low cost storage tiers,” said Molly Rector, executive vice president of product management and worldwide marketing, Spectra Logic. “The low-cost nature of tape, combined with its scalability and durability, ensures it will continue to play an important role in modern and evolving IT environments.”
