Multicloud storage mitigates risk of public cloud lock-in

Multicloud storage strategy allows for the shifting of data across public clouds so you can avoid lock-in to a single provider, reduce cost and improve workload efficiency.

Emerging Market Report on Multi-Cloud Primary Storage

Public cloud utilization continues to grow at a phenomenal rate. Infrastructure spending on the public and private cloud is growing at double digit rates while spending on traditional, non-cloud, IT infrastructure continues to decline and within a few short years will represent less than 50% of the entire infrastructure market. AWS alone, as the current gorilla of the public cloud market, continues to grow at over 40% year over year and now has an annualized run rate of around $15B. Microsoft boasts similar revenue numbers when their Office 365 SaaS offerings are included. This trend is not surprising and has been widely predicted for several years. The surprising element now is how strong the momentum has become toward public cloud adoption, and the question is where the long-term equilibrium point will be between public clouds and on-premises infrastructure.

AWS was a pioneer in public cloud storage services when it introduced S3 (Simple Storage Service) over ten years ago. The approach of public cloud vendors has been to offer storage services at cut-rate pricing in what can be called the “Hotel California” strategy – once they have your data it can “never leave.” After having a company’s data in their cloud infrastructure, they then offer a wide variety of higher priced services to complement access to that data. Global content distribution, data analytics, and a wide variety of individual compute capabilities are just a few examples of services offered. Recently, we have been hearing increased grumbling from customers that they are very concerned about losing the option to change vendors and the resulting reduction in competition.

In response, IT professionals are beginning to consider multi-cloud approaches to primary storage, to gain the scalability and agility benefits of the cloud but without the penalty of lock-in. This is a fresh, emerging and innovating space, which promises to open up cloud storage to a range of new customers and use cases.

To gather data and develop insights regarding plans for public and multi-public cloud use, Taneja Group conducted two primary research studies in the summer of 2017. In each case, we surveyed 350+ IT decision makers and practitioners around the globe, representing a wide range of industries and business sizes, to understand their current and planned use cases and deployments of applications to the public cloud.

Specifically, we wanted to understand the need for an emerging set of storage products we call multi-cloud primary storage. These products provide their data services across more than one cloud simultaneously.
