With business and personal life being more dependent on stored data than ever before, maximizing the life of storage solutions is a necessity. Whereas years ago a failing hard drive could result in a few erased pictures or a lost homework assignment, the stakes are now far higher.

When files disappear, employees can be left needing to redo expensive projects. When cloud storage becomes corrupted, businesses can lose massive amounts of irreplaceable accumulated user data required to fulfil client needs.
