Enterprise may be the last to adopt Cloud Storage. Not because they don’t like cloud storage, but because they already taken care of a lot of functionalities the cloud storage brings.
For example, replication, in order to run smoothly in case of a failed hard disk, enterprise has replication of data within the enterprise.
Another example, scalability, to make sure business runs smoothly with added head count, a lot of storage planning was done and a lot of existing storage capacity were idle, ready for expansion.
The top two functionality – the replication and the scalability, are already taken care of. So what is the selling point of a cloud storage like solution?
The answer goes to the functionalities that we are so familiar by now, the ability to access storage from any device, including mobile devices;the ability to access storage from web browsers; and the ability to do sync, share and collaboration on top of the storage services. In short, it is quite often referred to as a dropbox-like solution, with security and on-premise deployment added.
Quite often, you will hear CIO saying, I don’t want dropbox in my company because it scatters company owned documents everywhere, but I like a dropbox-like alternative solution that is built on top of my existing on-premise enterprise storage solution, which I own and have control over where the storage is.
