Investment in data storage and networks is picking up again after several years of decline, as businesses grow more conservative to cloud technologies and opt for on-premise data centres, the head of Hewlett Packard Enterprise Bulgaria tells SeeNews."Several years ago, we were witnessing a drop in investments in data storage systems and networks, as some of our big clients turned to cloud," HPE Bulgaria managing director Iravan Hira told SeeNews on the sidelines of a press event in Sofia earlier this month.A combination of factors has made businesses view the cloud in a more conservative manner, Hira explained.
"What we see now in Bulgaria, as well as in other countries, is that at one point our clients realised that their data, the information they have, is their most valuable asset and they would rather not share it. On the other hand, the regulators decided that the data should not be going everywhere unattended. At the same time cyber attacks are becoming more frequent.
