Active Archive Data Storage for the Public Sector

Governments are transforming digitally, to deliver an array of data-rich services for public use. Intelligence, security and other services create a need to store and secure vast amounts of big data. Data also has value over time and must be retained. New initiatives focus on extracting value and enabling access for institutions and to the public, but with stringent data privacy requirements. This new ‘data as value’ era in government has challenges that can be solved efficiently only through modern digital infrastructures.

No shortage of data

Public safety services use video to record incidents; intelligence and other agencies collect forensics and digital evidence to secure borders, provide travel safety and protect public assets from threats. Research, public health, transportation and safety services are all data-intensive. This places new demands on government data infrastructures, to manage growth of storage capacities and the need to preserve and secure data, while preserving privacy rules and regulations.

More data, more value

Health and welfare – and supporting research– are a big part of government today. Public health services are a major driver in the need for big data storage with smart analytics that can extract value from public data. Governments will need to leverage today’s advancements in applications, cloud computing, security while ensuring that precious public funds are allocated in the best way and at the lowest possible costs.

keeping up with growth and regulation

as data stores grow, so do rules

Enabling new services

New government services for security, police, healthcare and transportation require new technology infrastructure.

Massive growth of big data

Services ranging from video surveillance in public venues, public healthcare and public services will generate big data that needs to be securely stored and managed.

Ensuring data privacy and security

Government privacy regulations such as GDPR in Europe, and in healthcare – mandate the need to protect personally identifiable information.

Regulatory compliance

Data must be stored securely, and in many cases must be stored in specific geographic regions or clouds.

Efficient use of public funds

New infrastructures should be based on modern, reliable, yet low cost of ownership technologies. 

Future proofing and cloud

Government services will need to leverage dedicated clouds, and to securely manage data across on-premises and cloud environments.
