Government agencies are faced with a number of challenges when considering their data storage needs. The immense amount of information that must be stored and accessed when it comes to processing census data, to name just one example, requires very-high-performance storage capable of handling literally millions of transactions.
That high volume of transactions also holds true for a range of government applications as well. And as in so many other industries, once these transactions are handled, the public sector requires cost-effective solutions that meet long-term bulk storage requirements. Whether it’s providing social services, tracking property records or maintaining motor vehicle databases, the challenge remains the same. Database activities are frequently split into those that require high performance and those that focus on high density and capacity.
