Choosing the right storage infrastructure will determine the efficiency and productivity of your facility’s monitoring system.
Warehouse monitoring is an essential process in the pharmaceutical distribution chain that ensures continuous compliance. Temperature and relative humidity monitoring have become standard practice worldwide.
Several regulatory bodies mandate that storage facilities maintain sensitive medical equipment, pharmaceuticals, and vaccines within a narrow temperature and humidity margin. All these monitoring requirements help preserve the integrity of the products and thereby help protect the consumer.
Medicines, such as vaccines and therapeutics, may suffer a sharp decline in potency when exposed to high temperatures. On the other hand, for certain drugs, freezing conditions initiate a rise in reactogenicity and subsequent decline in potency.
ELPRO offers robust warehouse monitoring solutions for goods in permanent and temporary storage in light of all these factors. You can leverage ELPRO’s monitoring solutions to ensure consistent compliance, even in the transition from manufacturing to distribution.
However, before you choose any monitoring product, you must decide whether you will opt for cloud or on-premises data storage.
Currently, cloud storage receives a lot of hype and recommendation. Many users advocate for its flexibility deriving from the shared computing resources. More than a decade after its inception, cloud storage continues to grow in market share and seems to be overtaking previous storage options.
Nonetheless, on-premises storage still has a significant following, with many vouching for its stability, data security, and compliance.
Since warehouse monitoring generates enormous information, data storage and handling are necessary aspects that every organization must consider. In this article, we compare cloud and on-premises data storage options for your monitoring needs.
