How much storage do I need for DAM?

As a centralised repository for all your digital files, the most important factor to consider when choosing a digital asset management (DAM) provider is how much storage you’re going to need. There are many different types of DAM systems out there, all with varying benefits for your business. In this post, we’ll look at some of the factors to consider…

DAM jargon buster

What type of assets do you have?

The size of your DAM is very much dependent on the type of assets you need to store. If your company is a digital agency or works on an international level, you may have a lot of large files that need extra storage to contain. Or, if you choose a flexible provider, you can update the amount of storage you need dependent on the size and complexity of your company.

How many files do you have?

As well as the size of the files you predominantly have, you also need to consider the actual number of files you need to store. The larger your company and the more departments you have, the more storage you will need from your DAM.

Cloud-based systems

While on-site DAM platforms bring their own benefits to your business, a cloud-based system is a great choice for those looking for increased security and decreased hardware costs.

Even if your company is small, or a start-up, you may want to look at a larger DAM platform, to accommodate for business growth. At iBase, we offer flexible systems that can grow alongside your business, giving you the freedom to upgrade your storage as and when you need to.

How many users do you need?

Depending on the size of your business, the number of users that will need access to your DAM will differ. The more users you need, the larger you need your DAM system to be. If, for instance, you have a number of departments or sites, you will need a larger platform to support the increased number of users that will need to access your system.

With larger companies, you will also typically need to store more files in your DAM as you will need to share guidelines and policies across the group. With this comes the need for increased metadata to ensure everyone within your team can access the files with ease. Having a large, user-friendly DAM system can save time, reduce costs and improve productivity within your company.
