Cloud Storage is a form of cloud services where clients get to keep their data on a server belonging to or managed by a cloud vendor either on a private cloud or a public cloud. The vendor is responsible for preserving and securing the data, which the client can access on-demand over the Internet. By using this model, businesses can significantly reduce spending on purchasing, managing, and maintaining an expensive data storage infrastructure and replacing it with a cloud infrastructure. Since the service is available over the Internet, clients can access their data from anywhere in the world, providing agility, global scale, and durability. The other advantages include reliable data back-up protection, data archiving for disaster recovery purposes, and rapid deployment.
The increasing adoption of cloud storage is part of a greater trend toward cloud computing. Enterprise cloud storage services can include the utilization of storage services directly from the major Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) providers, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, or Microsoft Azure. Enterprise cloud storage solutions also include services from vendors like Box, Dropbox, Cloudian, and a long tail of other vendors. Consumer or personal cloud storage services can include everything from Dropbox to iCloud. You can find Cloud Storage Market Size, Cloud Storage Market Share, and other trends and statistics below.
The Cloud Storage Market is forecast to see continued strong growth in the forthcoming years as cloud adoption increases, and more enterprises embrace cloud-based and cloud computing services. The growth is primarily driven by increasing digitization of businesses and the exponential increase in data. Organizations are employing more mobile technologies, the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data, and Machine Learning. This leads to large amounts of data generation. The data needs to be stored in servers with low-cost and high accessibility. Cloud Storage Services are rising as a cost-effective and flexible alternative to purchasing and managing a data storage infrastructure on-premises. Due to this, the demand in the Cloud Storage Market and Cloud Computing in general, is likely to surge considerably in the forthcoming years.
Market research sources disagree intensely on the Cloud Storage Market Size, moderately disagree on the Cloud Storage Market Share, and generally agree on the fast Cloud Storage Growth. The cause of disagreement is due to the lack of a standardized definition of the Cloud Storage Industry and what types of products should be included. Therefore different sources may have very different perspectives of Cloud Storage market share and Cloud Storage industry size. For a complete evaluation of the Cloud Storage market, T4 recommends exploring all available sources. T4 aggregated and organized the data from these sources on the T4 Industry Research Platform.
