Enterprises often turn to cloud storage solutions to gain advanced storage management capabilities. However, even after subscribing to an enterprise-grade cloud storage platform, organizations still need to overcome complex architectural challenges, and figure out how to meet their high-availability, cost-efficiency and data protection requirements. This calls for the adoption of certain best practices.
