IT Consulting Firm, Clare Computer Solutions, Provides Three Questions To Ask To Determine Data Storage Needs

SAN RAMON, Calif., April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The ever-growing need to store increasing amounts of data is a challenge faced by businesses. Emails, presentations, databases, graphics, renderings, and video files are just some of the information companies continue to accumulate and need to determine how to efficiently store.

Clare Computer Solutions, (Clare), a San Francisco Bay Area business IT consultant, recommends that businesses ask the following three questions to find the long-term data storage solution that's right for their business.

  • How much data needs to be stored and how are those needs expected to change over the next 12, 24 and 36 months?
  • Where will data be accessed? Locally? Remotely? Both?
  • How will data be accessible if there is a disaster?

"Companies need to ensure that their data is useful, safe, and available," says Brad Mendonsa, CEO of Clare Computer Solutions.  "We work with businesses on solutions for backing up their data so that it can be accessed quickly, even in a disaster. We also determine the length of time that data needs to be stored based on their needs, legal requirements and budgetary factors."

Clare works on data storage solutions for businesses in a variety of industry sectors including construction, legal, medical, manufacturing, and insurance throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, and largely in Contra Costa and Alameda counties.

Recently, Clare worked with MBH, an architectural firm in Alameda, California on a long-term data storage solution. 

"Data on our firm's servers was literally doubling every eight months," says Gerald McDaniel, MBH's IT Director. "Clare consulted with us to select the Storage Area Network configuration that was right for our needs now and for many years into the future."
