Enterprises today face the daunting challenge of managing and securing storage sprawl on an enormous scale.
In many cases, the majority of the storage comprises of simple file servers holding unstructured user content.
File servers are a perfect example of a technology that warrants the phrase “why change something that just works?”.
File servers are often plagued by permissions chaos and lack of governance, leading to aging storage systems which are vulnerable to intrusion, data loss, and compliance issues.
While on-premises storage might be sufficient for users to access their content in a centralized location, a second look at the costs and inadequacies show that file servers leave much to be desired.
1.) File servers are costly.
While the cost of hard drives might not be too much, consider everything else that a redundant, high availability file server environment takes. Whether it’s backup, cooling, VPNs, software, or racks, there are dozens of costly items that support a simple file server.
As the saying goes, “storage is cheap, uptime is expensive”.
2.) File servers are insecure.
With storage sprawl, staying on top of patching and mitigating vulnerabilities becomes troublesome.
3.) File servers are feature lacking.
File servers are also lagging in terms of what your users can accomplish with them. Without any modern collaboration and mobile capabilities, it’s no wonder users favor other solutions.
Cloud collaboration platforms are feature rich and are widely liked by end users and admins alike.
Moving content to collaboration platforms from legacy on-premises storage means mobile access without VPNs, easy internal and external collaboration, security, automatically scaling storage, and no more patching or maintenance.
In addition, your organizations content immediately becomes more valuable with the and powerful integrations with other cloud services available.
As a system administrator, director of collaboration, or a digital transformation consultant, Cloud FastPath enables you to migrate file servers to the cloud with the push of a button.
First, Cloud FastPath analyzes source systems so you can plan and segment a migration
Second Cloud FastPath automatically maps users, groups, permissions, sharing and custom metadata between systems.
Third, backed by Cloud FastPath’s fully-managed and auto-scaling migration infrastructure, you can transfer dozens of terabytes per day.
See why hundreds of organizations have used Cloud FastPath to migrate petabytes into and between cloud collaboration platforms. Get a free trial at cloudfastpath.com
