 Storage and data management

Storage and data management is a thorn in the side for most IT decision-makers. Your network devices might last seven or nine years … but your storage capacity never lasts that long.  As the amounts of digital information your business creates and consumes increase exponentially year-on-year, you need help in dealing with the cycle of constant technology upgrades and growing storage expenditure

Additional storage capacity won't necessarily resolve all your problems. Not all data is created equal. Different types of organisational data are subject to different regulatory, archiving and availability requirements. No single off-the-shelf approach exists to satisfy all organisational needs. Similarly, backup and disaster recovery (DR) calls for a more strategic approach.

Only by looking at organisational data throughout its lifecycle − from creation to movement, storage, archiving and retrieval − can you make sense of storage and data management in a way that reduces cost, complexity and risk.



If these challenges sound familiar, look no further. Dimension Data provides multi-vendor solutions to optimise your storage, archiving, retrieval, backup and recovery of data to ensure business continuity, disaster recovery, compliance … and the rapid delivery of information to your business. 

Our storage and data management services help you optimise and simplify your storage and data environment in the following areas: 

  • data management
  • storage management
  • business continuity

Because your data is unique and one size doesn't fit all, each solution is tailored to meet your specific requirements.




  • Enabling the next generation data centre

    ​​​​The pundits all have an answer on the future vision of IT, but no enterprise is there today nor likely to be at that future state any time soon.  Reality is today's IT budgets are dominated by data centre infrastructure spending and resources to manage those centres.  How does an enterprise plan their data centre to meet immediate needs and not overspend as the hybrid model takes root?


 ​Our storage and data management services will enable you to:

  • understand the current state of your data centre infrastructure and put in develop a roadmap to support future initiatives
  • keep information protected, compliant and available in line with your business's expectations
  • avoid loss of critical data through robust disaster recovery (DR) and backup and recovery
  • categorise data based on value and importance, in turn driving down costs and reducing complexity and risk
  • understand how to reduce risks, analyse return on investment to justify future investments
  • enhance service level agreements and improve the efficiency of administrators
