Are You Ready for Storage as a Service?

The exponential growth of corporate data is forcing companies, regardless of size or vertical industry to re-evaluate how to best manage their data environments. As new technologies and business models evolve, they create new opportunities for IT leaders to better support corporate objectives and lines of business needs.

Globally, the traditional approaches to storage management are under extreme stress. Storage as a Service (STaaS) is growing in the U.S. Canadian companies - particularly companies in the West - face additional challenges. Rapid growth of business translates to rapid growth of data. Privacy legislation and concern for data sovereignty add a layer of complexity for many companies. Others struggle with requirements from partners and owners in the U.S. Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS) is seen as a strategic move that can help organizations reduce cost, improve IT agility and bring innovation to the business.
