In the world of storage management, something looms large on the horizon: the cloud. The cloud impacts storage strategies whether you are moving your storage to the cloud, managing the on-premises storage of private cloud applications, or a combination. Many organizations already take advantage of cloud storage, but an even greater shift is on the way. In a recent survey, respondents forecasted increases in cloud storage as large as 75 percent.

IT operations and storage managers realize that the cloud offers increased agility and potential savings. But it also further increases IT complexity especially in hybrid environments, and its benefits cannot be realized without proper preparation. Make no mistake: Businesses will need a comprehensive cloud strategy to keep up with storage demands. But the inefficiency, underutilization, and lack of visibility in today’s physical and virtual storage environments must be addressed before an effective transition to the cloud can take place.
