Benefits of decentralizing cloud-based data management systemsBy CIOAdvisor Apac | Tuesday, January 08, 2019
One of the biggest priorities of the business and research organizations is to ensure data storage security. Its better to leverage decentralized cloud storage platforms than the local centralized ones. Organizations today are constantly adopting the digital transformations necessary to drive the business landscape to be competitive in the market.
Digital conversations help to increase revenue growth, labor productivity. Organizations seek for the right data sources to collect quality data for achieving digitization. After the collection of data companies’ concern is to store the data. They face numerous issues if the collected data is stored in the hardware storage as storage capacity issues, hardware failures or internal data thefts. To fix the issues cloud storage is the solution to store real-time growing data on the cloud.
Cloud storage data aids companies by storing data remotely, managing fast-growing data, and securing data with automated backup features. It is easy to drag and drop the data from the cloud directly to any required location and accessed from anywhere using the internet. Cloud storage platforms deliver affordability, cut off the additional money of buying and maintaining storage devices. Also, cloud technology ensures data security. Storage devices are prone to physical damage that risks data corruption and losing it. But because of cybersecurity threats data stored on the cloud face a high risk of being hacked into. Companies should build a cloud storage strategy, which allows them to store the data on a platform, which does not require high management and offers easy deployment feature.
The current centralized cloud storage platforms accumulate all the data in a private cloud. This avails the hackers to get access to the data center where they can hold all the collected data. Decentralized cloud data storage can fix the problem by leveraging the blockchain technology and cryptographic solutions. It can track data flow and make it difficult for anyone to add or delete data without identity verification. The blockchain-based cloud platforms don’t store data instead they store cryptographic hashes of the collected data segments. Only active users on the blockchain network can access codes of the data file, which decreases the possibilities of data breaching. Decentralized cloud-based platforms today lure the organizations to shift their data on it. With the future development in the technology will go mainstream.
