Are you at risk of losing customers to cloud computing services?
Cloud services are a compelling solution for end users who are looking both to reduce their costs and scale to meet peak loads. Users are increasingly testing cloud services and starting with cloud storage, where adoption is relatively simple. However, many traditional service providers will miss out as users focus on storing data with companies that also offer cloud computing services. Once an organization's data is stored on a cloud computing service, the likelihood that it will also migrate its hosting and compute services increases substantially. Firms are driven by the allure of on-demand pricing and the desire to avoid multiple vendors and bandwidth latency issues. Service providers can mitigate this risk by partnering with a pure play storage-as-a-service provider like Nirvanix. By doing so, they can economically supplement existing services and infrastructure without needing to manage a complicated software solution.
