Tech Council offers data storage management paper
MADISON, Wis. (9/16/11)--"Safety and integrity of data are No. 1 in any storage scheme credit unions explore. Yet, security concerns shouldn't prevent credit unions from planning to obtain greater efficiencies and cost savings of the latest technologies such as cloud computing," says a new white paper released Thursday by the CUNA Technology Council. IBM, Armonk, N.Y., highlights cloud computing among current storage trends, the paper says. "Cloud computing--loosely defined as combined and redistributed computer resources--is growing in appeal due to its seemingly unlimited computational resources, planning and forecasting capabilities, and flexibility," the paper says. It discusses security concerns regarding data storage, benefits and drawbacks of outsourcing storage management, and types of cloud storage arrangements. Also, two credit unions describe how their data storage has evolved, eliminating backup tapes and implementing a private cloud. CUNA Council members can get complimentary copies of this and more than 300 other white papers. Non-members can use the link for pricing information.
