Well sometimes you want it hot when it’s warm.  Often it’s cold when you need it warm.  And sometimes it’s just right.

Here’s what we experience in the state where I live.  (Why would you live in a state of extremes?  A topic for another day.)

In our modern business climate, companies need to know their data.  Business leadership should go through an analysis of company data and determine if it needs to be:

Hot – Warm – Cold

Hot = data can be accessed immediately from an alternate site should something happen at your main data center.

Warm = data exists in a digital state, but would need to be mounted to a server to access it.

Cold = data is stored in archive on tape or other long term storage device.

This exercise will ensure the appropriate solution is being used to provide optimal efficiency and performance of applications and network.  Creating peak production and bottom line results everyone will be happy to report.
