Data storage refers to the process of using computer devices to save various digital information. It relies on electromagnetic, optical, and other media to preserve and restore digitally recorded data. It consists of hard drives, solid-state drives (SSD), compact disk (CD), digital versatile disc (DVD) drives, hybrid flash arrays, and hybrid cloud storage, which enables users to access and store data from anywhere, not just any local computer or external hard disk. It also includes network-attached storage (NAS), which allows numerous machines to share storage over a network, thereby centralizing data and improving collaboration. Data storage makes it easy to back up files for safekeeping and spontaneous recovery in the event of an unexpected cyberattack or computer crash. It also offers frequent backups and long-term archives, along with future scaling opportunities. It helps organizations review, update, track, and share data seamlessly, which is necessary for easy collaboration and smooth operation in work-from-home (WFH) settings. It also increases the productivity of teams by reducing the hassle of printing, scanning, filing, and sending documents manually.
