The external hard drive is a cost-effective way for government and education organizations to back up important files and save room on and speed up the performance of working hard drives as well as expand the storage capacity of a system. The backup hard drive is often purchased as an inexpensive... insurance policy to ensure that important data is not lost or that there is a mirror in case of a system failure.
The brands that have created names for themselves in the external hard drive market include Toshiba and Seagate, both of which have portable hard drive product lines as well as fixed hard drives. Brands such as Apricorn, Buffalo Technology, and LaCie improve upon the technology by adding automated updates and increased security measures as well as data coding with higher encryption characteristics. In most of these brands, the backup hard drive works in the background without disturbing the primary functions of a computer or a network system. They can also be separated from the main network system and transported to other places for collocated data storage or data transfer to a physically separate system.
The information that government agencies and educational institutions manage can be sensitive, requiring the backup functionality and safety a portable hard drive can provide. The selection of external hard drive options that we offer can serve your organization in this capacity as well as many others including creating network mirrors in the cloud and providing easy access to disorganized data. Here at Connection, we will work with you to find the right external hard drive model for your specific organizational needs.
