The State of the Cloud Storage Adoption

Battling Disasters  Speaking of disasters, 22% of respondents who use the cloud in the office say they can instantly recover data in the event of a catastrophic loss of company information. Just 5% say it would take more than a week.

If a CIO has heard it once, he or she has heard it a thousand times: The cloud is the future. From storage, to computing, to data recovery, the cloud is viewed by many to be the panacea that the corporate world has always been waiting for. Without cloud comouting, some say, companies could find themselves far behind competitors that realize and embrace the advantages of the Web.

In a new survey from cloud-storage company Twin Strata, that same old refrain seems to have been proven true. The vast majority of respondents to the company's study say that the cloud is an integral component in their data-retention efforts. And not surprisingly, many of them plan to increase their investment in cloud computing in the coming years.
