Our company stores and serves large number of documents to numerous users simultaneously but there exists an imbalance in frequent access of a document. It gets worst with increased growth of data.
We need some solution with the help of which we could serve our documents more efficiently.
Please suggest.

Rather than maintaining your own storage infrastructure, maybe you could use your current front end with Amazon S3 storage?

Default Re: Scalable File Storage

It would be hard to suggest a solution if the overall picture is not laid out.

First of all, what kind of document formats are requested and served? Plain text files are handled very differently than word or PDF files or Images (since there are too many imaging formats!). Please be clear on this.

The next point to consider is: how often does a particular document, on average, is requested? Are documents requested every day, every few hours, or are they stored initially then requested when a check or validation is done? If this happens, is it once or twice during the life cycle of a document?

Are these real time or archival-type documents?

Considering all these, you could expect a correct solution.

No offense, but don't you think you would be better off getting advice with this topic on a site specifically designed for IT professionals?
