STEP 1: REVIEW YOUR SERVER GOALS

Before you can implement a storage server, it’s important to determine what your server goals are and what success will look like. Based on our experience, most businesses looking to store data are concerned with:

Scalability

You want a solution that allows you to deploy new servers quickly and to your specifications.

Security

One of the major benefits of cloud storage is having data stored in a facility monitored 24×7 that is secure from physical and environmental threats.

Support

You want one-to-one support access and a personalized experience with an account manager who knows your business.

Simplicity

You don’t want to spend hours in a complicated server interface. Deploying and managing servers should be fast and easy.

Speed

You need rapid server deployment and the fastest network connections available on the best carriers.

 

STEP 2: DETERMINE YOUR REQUIREMENTS

Next, you should start compiling a detailed list of your server requirements.

If you are a new business, you may not know exactly how much server storage you will need. That’s okay - you can always upgrade or add more servers as your resources grow. Since you do not need to invest in up-front hardware costs when choosing a cloud storage partner, you can always migrate data to a new server without having to pay for all new hardware.

Consider the following when compiling your server requirements:

Based on your answers, this should help guide you towards the right server requirements for your storage server.

Here are some hardware selection tips:

Location

One of the most important factors for storing data is that it is rapidly accessible at all times.

Choose a server in close proximity to your business. Most larger enterprises will set up servers throughout the world so that data is accessible at the best speeds to all of their business units.

CPU

Storage servers are not generally dependant upon their CPU. However, the CPU you choose may restrict how many hard drives are available in the chassis.

You should determine how many hard drives you need the server to accommodate and then select an appropriate CPU.

Memory

32GB to 64GB of RAM is sufficient for most storage servers.
Your needs may differ depending on the applications you are using to store data and databases.

Disk Space

SSD and NVMe disks are common in storage servers where data is routinely accessed by large groups of users. These disks deliver the fastest read and write performance. We’d recommend one of these options if your budget allows for it. For long-term archiving of data at lower prices, traditional hard disk drives are a great option.

 

Networking

Bandwidth requirements also vary between businesses depending on how much data they need to upload and download from the server on a monthly basis. Many companies select unmetered bandwidth to ensure they can transfer large amounts of data without incurring bandwidth overages.
