Follow us on LinkedIn – In the coming months, GIA will complete an extensive secondary and primary research program involving some of the industry’s leading players and experts. The study will examine key drivers and trends impacting the market such as increased emphasis on cloud based approaches to IT against a backdrop of enterprise budgetary constraints; growing popularity of cloud computing services especially infrastructure as a service (IaaS); increasing adoption of IaaS among SMBs; proliferation of smartphones, tablets and ensuing demand for consumer cloud storage services for online storage of documents, photos, music, etc; and big data induced need for increased storage resources and greater efficiency.
Defined as remote storage of data online over the cloud on servers hosted by third party service providers, cloud based storage is expected to witness robust growth in the coming years. A key factor driving growth in the market is the steady migration of compute and storage intensive back-office enterprise applications to the cloud such as, manufacturing and resource planning, among others. Increased deployment of hybrid cloud is also resulting in the growing popularity of the hybrid cloud storage approach thus benefiting cloud storage services. Key benefits of Cloud Storage driving growth in the market include reduced need for IT capital investments, high scalability, flexible access to stored data, improvements in service delivery and data security, subscription based payment model and lower operating costs, unrivalled business agility, and support for disaster recovery and business continuity.
The rise of big data is expected to especially benefit Storage as a Service (STaaS). Storing huge volumes of data in the cloud is easy and cost effective. Rapid developments in technology that help speed up the process of managing data in the cloud so as to enable new, varied and innovative use of available data will help drive growth. The growing trend towards business continuity over the clouds is also helping spur demand for cloud storage management services. The evolution of cloud based BC/DR service delivery models, such as, online backup, cloud-based disaster recovery and backup services, among others is poised to benefit the market. Cloud BC/DR services, wherein BC/DR software solutions are made available as online services over the Internet, offer cost effective business continuity allowing businesses to access and use the services without requiring additional infrastructure.
