Cloud Storage

Massive storage arrays have a far lower cost per Gigabyte than small disk drives. Provided your apps can operate with remote storage, the cost of using a cloud provider who can afford such ‘bulk’ infrastructure is likely to be significantly cheaper. Replication and back-up of information is simpler in the cloud improving data security.
