Amount of data out there is growing at unprecedented speed. Some predict that the amount of data created during the next 2 years is larger than the amount of data created during the whole digital history. Same trend applies to most industries – some more, some less. Regardless of whether you are in retail, education or healthcare (just random examples) – there is more and more data and IT organisations are constantly struggling to keep pace with this growth and usually finding themselves in situations where IT budgets are not growing fast enough.
This is also true that access requirements are not equal for all data generated. In every organisation there is tons of data which is not classified as hot data, meaning there is always a use case for secondary storage regardless if it is on-prem or hosted. Also there can be scenarios that currently business is not able to extract value from data generated, but it can be absolutely different in the future – so it makes sense to keep this data for future for example for future growth modeling where one part of the equation is also company specific historical data. Those use case scenarios can be many and therefore it could be tempting to keep this data. Also there are always backup and archival use cases that companies need to cope with to manage their risks and also to comply with regulatory requirements.
I’m pretty sure that periodically every company faces an important decision either to renew existing storage for backup software, extend contract with existing service provider or seek for new alternatives. Cloud storage can be one of those alternatives for example replacing on-prem storage for backup targets. Also it can be used to mitigate additional risks by adding an additional Disaster Recovery copy of your data or offsite archive.
You may wonder why there is a need for more cloud storage providers if incumbent players like AWS, Microsoft and Google are already out there and general perception is that this service is already cheap enough and why need to bother at all. But, have you really done the math by actually comparing prices?
