Cloud-based Storage
The global market for Cloud-Based Storage Services is projected to reach US$117 billion by 2024, driven by the numerous benefits of cloud that can no longer be overlooked against the backdrop of the evolving era of “as-a-Service” where 'everything' is now a service (XaaS). Few of the benefits responsible for why cloud storage is today a big part of the modern enterprise include low initial CAPEX and total cost of ownership (TCO); easy and rapid deployment; agility offered by on-demand services; self-service provisioning and ability to self-customize and configure services; pay-per-use subscription billing; resource scalability and the ensuing ability to 'scale right' as per changing requirements; enhanced data/content sharing and collaboration experience; ensures easy and cost-effective compliance to data storage regulations; enables effective business continuity and disaster recovery; unrivalled data portability and enterprise mobility benefits which are vital in this era of connected enterprises; lower infrastructure management and maintenance burden. Other major factors also influencing growth include growing adoption of a wide variety of business applications and IT solutions as SaaS based solutions and the ensuing popularity of cloud-to-cloud backup security for SaaS data; rise of SMBs as a major customer cluster for Storage-as-a-Service; increasing use of big data in the Internet of Things (IoT) era and the resulting need for cost-effective storage of mountains of big data; rise of data-intensive business environments, the focus shed on managing and treating data as a corporate asset and the ensuing expansion of spending budgets for IT storage. The United States represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 31.1% over the analysis period led by the development of the enterprise sector; growing cloud readiness of Asian economies; increased reliance of emerging Asian economies on digitalization, the Internet and transformative enterprise technologies and the ensuing strict legislation of mandatory data archiving regulations; rising adoption of consumer cloud storage as the standard data storage technology among the rapidly digitalizing smartphone friendly internet population.
