Apples to Oranges
When beginning a records management discussion, you’ll quickly find that there are many camps online with their own method of storage they advocate for. Frequently these arguments are punctuated with words like “obsolete” “unreliable” or “vulnerable” – leaving a business owner scratching their head over statistics and facts used to back the opinions.
However, one thing that doesn’t occur to the average observer is the differences in needs that many businesses have. While one medium might provide an excellent solution for one business, it may be a terrible choice for another. Need the lowest cost, highest volume type of storage with the longest lifespan? Magnetic tape storage might be for you. Need immediate backup with as little delay as possible in receiving your information? Cloud storage might be what you are looking for. Want a mixture of those two? Consider an offsite hard drive storage solution.
The basic premise here is that it is almost impossible to set two options side by side and made the declaration that one is better than the other. While it is worthwhile to evaluate and compare the different forms for each individual business, there is no “one size fits all” solution when considering the value and importance placed upon your business records.
