Enterprise storage is designed for large-scale companies to offer higher scalability, higher reliability and overall, maximum performance. Qumulus' Enterprise Storage solution has three main components: primary, secondary and archival. Primary storage houses data that is actively being used and accessed on a regular basis. Secondary storage creates a copy of the primary stored data and moved it to a backup hardware for disaster recovery purposes. Archival storage stores dormant data that is outdated and inactive, but must be stored for a certain length of time due to compliance standards.
