Adapting Data Protection Strategies to Cloud Infrastructure

eBook Whitepaper



Eighty percent of organizations have already adopted, or plan to adopt cloud service solutions. Yet often overlooked, is how to protect data moving to a public cloud.

This document is designed for organizations who are actively researching data protection strategies as they move workloads, applications, and datasets into public cloud infrastructures.


Cloud computing is moving beyond the hype phase. The technology industry is preparing for a growing shift in consumption toward pay-as-you-go services, as organizations seek to get out of actively managing their own IT departments, with their capital investments and operating headaches, to free up resources to focus on their business core competencies.

According to research from InformationWeek, 45% of organizations are currently using cloud services, up from 36% in 2013, and another 22% are considering doing so.2 This demonstrates the widespread belief that cloud services will be a key part of most organizations’ IT strategies in the not
too distant future.

This steady march reflects the process that many organizations are undergoing, as they test, then ramp their approach. Many organizations have been “kicking the tires” on cloud services over the past few years – migrating one remote office, or one departmental workload, or one tier two or three application at a time. Now as many become ready to expand their usage based on successes and learnings from their initial pilots, we will see a tipping point in acceleration of IT spend shift.
