Cloud storage is a cloud computing model wherein data is stored on remote servers and accessed over the Internet or through a dedicated private network connection. It is maintained, operated, and managed by cloud storage service providers. It offers instant automatic backup and protection from theft and natural disasters and reduces costs for maintenance and management of the servers. Besides this, as it delivers a cost-effective and scalable alternative to storing files on on-premises hard drives or storage networks, cloud storage finds extensive applications in the manufacturing, telecommunications, media and entertainment, and information technology (IT) industries across the globe.

Cloud Storage Market Trends:
There is presently a significant rise in the amount of data created, copied and consumed globally. This, in confluence with the thriving banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) sector, represents one of the key factors propelling the growth of the market. Moreover, cloud storage solutions are employed in the healthcare industry as they provide easier access to electronic medical records (EMR), which is pivotal for the diagnosis and treatment of patients. These solutions also offer real-time backup of medical data by allowing healthcare providers to quickly restore the data in the event of hardware failure, power loss, and data breaches ensuring minimal disruption or interruption to patient care. This, coupled with the increasing automation in different industry verticals around the world, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Furthermore, the growing adoption of the remote working on account of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak and consequent imposition of lockdown in different countries is driving the market. Apart from this, the rising adoption of serverless cloud, which does not require leasing servers or paying for fixed amounts of storage or bandwidth, is anticipated to impel the market growth.
