Cloud data storage systems allow large enterprises to handle more projects, perform more in-depth research, and serve up more data. Both capacity and performance can be easily and non-disruptively scaled to meet changing business needs, all without any additional IT burden. They provide tools to dramatically increase workflow productivity and maximize the value of enterprise applications and Big Data assets, allowing business acceleration through faster time to market and new revenue opportunities.

Cloud data storage systems help address these needs by providing flexible security options, including auditing and Data at Rest Encryption. They also provide secure role separation between storage administration and system access, as well as the ability to create secure, isolated storage pools for specific departments within the enterprise.
