Hybrid clouds offer organizations the control, security and flexibility required to integrate existing infrastructure investments and still preserve sensitive data. Join ESG Senior Analyst Terri McClure and ownCloud’s Matt Richards tomorrow at noon ET as they share critical data driving the shift to a hybrid model.
“Three Trends Driving Hybrid Cloud File Sharing”, is part of a series educating organizations on how to protect and maintain control of their data.
“We are seeing significant pent up demand for online file sharing solutions that allow users to store some or all of their data on premises,” said McClure. “There are a number of drivers behind this demand. In addition to security concerns organizations express when it comes to storing data in the cloud, they also want to have control over where they store their data, and the ability leverage existing IT investments.”
A recent survey conducted by Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. found:
- Adoption of corporate file sharing is on the rise, with 42% of companies currently using solutions
- 90% of current and potential OFS (Online File Sharing) users prohibit some type of data from being stored in the public cloud
- Accordingly, 69% of organizations already using cloud-based solutions state they are extremely interested in file sync and share with on-premises storage
