Public Cloud Storage Services Market: Introduction
Public cloud storage services are cost-effective and offer scalability, reliability and performance benefits. Using public cloud storage services lets organizations offload management tasks and the costs associated with supporting physical hardware to an external provider. An organization's data is stored in the provider's data center and the provider manages and maintains all facets of the data center, including power, cooling and server maintenance. As a result, organizations don't have to worry about archive planning, implementing security practices or conducting resource planning for future data growth.
Public cloud storage services are also cost-effective; organizations pay only for the resources they use. Public cloud storage services provides a scalable and agile environment for businesses to increase or decrease storage on demand. Organizations use the public cloud to store both structured and unstructured data. Many applications that have made their way to the cloud -- such as those that use back-end databases or structured data -- handle data from applications that tie directly into cloud database services. This type of cloud storage environment is appealing to companies that are either just starting out and don't want to purchase hardware or that are looking for scalable storage that doesn't require a large capital expenditure.
