Welcome to the November edition of the Storage magazine eNewsletter, in which Druva’s Rick Powles examines what the continuing move to cloud models means for the storage sector. The growth of "as-a-Service" applications has driven companies to outsource their application infrastructure, while the use of public cloud platforms for new company applications has also grown.

One result of this is that an estimated 40% of company data never sits within a corporate data centre. Instead, it lives in applications, on devices or on remote file servers when local copies are created. For individual users, this growth in data is a natural by-product of more mobility and flexibility in working; for IT, it's a headache as the data centre is no longer the centre of data.

As Rick says: “Cloud technologies can help companies unify and handle data at scale. Public cloud services are designed for scale, whereas more traditional IT architectures were not put together with this in mind.”
