Network and Server Management
Network Attached Storage
Benefits: Cloud-based versus on-premises systems
Lower costs, more agility
Cloud-based network management systems typically have low startup costs for users, since they do not require local servers. These systems also enhance IT agility, since they offer business teams easy access from anywhere for those that are geographically dispersed.
Better performance, more security
On-premises servers offer greatly increased performance for larger campus networks, especially when assurance, analytics, and artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are included in the network management system. A local server also offers greater security for network data, since everything is stored onsite.
Downsides to on-premises systems
There are some downsides to using on-premises network management systems. For example, remote access to the server requires a VPN connection. So, an on-premises server cannot provide the same level of IT-team agility as a cloud-based server, especially for dispersed teams in branch offices.
Also, network administration for on-premises systems is resource-intensive. It includes installing, maintaining, and upgrading the hardware and software necessary to keep the network running optimally.
Hybridised environment also are available.

What Is A QNAP. QNAP's Network Attached Storage(NAS) are systems that consist of one or more hard drives that are constantly connected to the internet. The QNAP becomes your backup "hub", or storage unit that stores all your important files and media such as photos, videos and music.
Your backup and disaster recovery solution should just work. Every time. No ifs, ands, or buts. StorageCraft leads the industry for fast, reliable recovery ...
StorageCraft provides data management, storage and protection solutions for the next-generation hybrid data center, be it on-premises or in the cloud.
Replicate backups anywhere: a local device, remote server, co-location facility, third-party cloud, private cloud, or the StorageCraft Cloud
Even though your organization’s SaaS data is in the cloud, that doesn’t mean it’s completely safe.
When it comes to working in cloud-based applications, the option of granular recovery isn’t a given. But the opportunity for human error is.
Humans delete important files, overwrite one another’s documents, and accidentally download viruses. And SaaS vendors may or may not have a recovery solution for you. If they do, there’s no guarantee that it'll be easy, that you’ll get the data in a useful format, or that the recovery will happen quickly or inexpensively.
We Already Have a Backup Solution – Why Do We Need Archiving As Well?
Company emails should never simply be deleted. Archiving emails is important to ensure that the information contained in them remains available at all times. However, the archive itself should be part of your backup plan and protected against system failure!
We already back up the data on our email servers. There’s no need to archive the data separately”.
IT managers who subscribe to this premise are taking a considerable risk, because backups are no substitute for a professional email archive.
Although backups and archiving are both key elements of any safety-conscious business, they pursue different objectives (see table below):
The aim of archiving, however, is to store emails for many years in a form that is faithful to the original, easy to find, and permanently available. This forms the basis for a professional information management strategy that takes all legal and regulatory requirements into account.
