Cloud Storage and Colocation both rely on the resilience and reliability of data centres, so why do many businesses choose local data storage over the cloud?
1. Data Sovereignty.
Data Sovereignty typically refers to the understanding that data is subject to the laws of the nation within which it is stored, making it an important issue to consider when using cloud computing services. By using local data storage, there is no ambiguity as to the applicable laws and protections in place for your business.
2. Peace of mind.
By storing data locally, you’re able to work closely with real people you can get in touch with directly, instead of a faceless corporation. By visiting the data centre personally, you’re able to gain first-hand experience with their standards and facilities.
3. Enhanced performance.
Storing data locally can improve the performance of applications and services that rely on that data, thanks to lower latency and greater flexibility over your choice of carrier and network design.
4. Better reliability.
Local data storage is less susceptible to outages or other disruptions that can affect cloud-based services. This can provide greater reliability and availability for applications and services that rely on access to that data.
5. Reduced cost.
In many cases, using local data storage can be more cost-effective than using cloud-based services, especially for businesses that need to store large amounts of data. This can be due to the lower cost of hardware and the ability to offset the cost of that hardware over a longer period of time.
