The federal government handles enormous amounts of data. It maintains much of our personal information, like Social Security and tax records. It collects data across industries for analysis and reporting, and it also generates more data on its own.

Additionally, the rapid growth of mobile devices and apps, cloud solutions, and smart sensors feed even more data into the mix.

The staggering volumes of data affect the government’s ability to provide real-time and historical data. Plus, long regulatory retention periods affect the amount of storage needed.

Finally, federal regulations require government data to be protected, controlled, and unchanged in storage. Failing to protect confidential data can have devastating effects on individual citizens — and even national security.

With so much data to be stored, agencies need a flexible and easily managed solution. In these lessons, we’ll talk about how to solve this data problem with a scale-out network-attached storage platform.
