A friend in need is a friend indeed
Has there ever been a moment in your life where you’d spend most of your free time hanging out with a friend to whom you were completely devoted? And if so, what happened when this friend decided to make other friends and wasn’t interested in hanging out anymore? Shoot, it must’ve been an excruciating moment, no doubt. You’re not alone though. Most of us have been through similar experiences.
But the point is: What was your take from such an awful event? For starters, let’s agree you need better friends who won’t dump you when you just want to enjoy their company 24/7 (Just Kidding). You must’ve learned through a painful way that depending on just one person to live your own life is not a healthy way of living, is it?
The same example above can be used when you think about data within your company. If you deploy your data in a platform that doesn’t replicate data in order to save your information, you’re likely putting your business in jeopardy. You need your data available and secure, so you can leverage it on demand.
Traditional solutions don’t replicate
This is quite an important matter to discuss because you surely don’t want to experience any data loss neither its unavailability, which can compromise your competitive advantage. But how do you know whether your data is or isn’t being replicated ?
Just check if your company uses an on-premises platform. Unfortunately, such solutions are a nightmare because they are hard to scale, have a limited lifetime and limited performance, not to mention that they must be backed up on another server.
You can always move your information to cloud-based data warehouses to fix such issues, but they usually require experts to micromanage a lot of variables in order to ensure ideal performance. A lot of cloud-based services work with a pay-for-performance model, where you have to rent more expensive services to improve speed, even though you still have to manually partition data to optimize processing. On top of that, you’ll have to pay for and manage replication, in most cases.
Multi-cloud deployment with SlicingDice
One way to ensure secure, real time availability and high performance is to have data duplicated in more than one region, from different cloud providers. That’s why The All-in-One Data Warehouse provided by SlicingDice, automatically replicate your data in at least 3 different regions and multiple cloud providers, allowing safety due to redundancy and also performance with parallel processing.
This allows you to leverage state-of-the-art infrastructure, without investing in hardware or personnel. Besides, an automatic multi-cloud deployment means exactly that - running software on more than one cluster of shared computers without users having to worry about setting it up. It’s a way to adopt the advantages of cloud computing, like lower costs, security and data mobility, without having to hire new experts to manage this deployment.
SlicingDice believes in making your business worry less about data management and more about transforming data into business value. It completely handles backups, sharding, partitioning - while also being serverless and schemaless - to ensure you can simply insert and leverage data. It simply works. Also, you save a lot of money on expert requirement, hardware, backups and migration. Your company is ensured by Slicingdice’s cloud providers (AWS, GCP, Azure, Alibaba and OVH), that are in compliance with the highest safety standards possible. We've got your back 24/7.
