Organizations need to store and access files over time. With the growth of data, along with the added pressure to make records management user-friendly, many organizations have looked to the skies for alternatives. Information Week brought this news to us in their article, “No-Cloud’ Policies Will Nearly Disappear By 2020, Gartner Says.”

Utilizing the power of the clouds has been so common that within three years, more than 30% of the world’s 100 largest vendors are expected to shift software investments from a cloud-first strategy to a cloud-only strategy. Under a cloud-first policy, vendors consider the cloud as the first option when implementing an application, whereas they will use the cloud as the default option for software deployment. In the end and despite some skepticism, hybrid clouds are expected to be the most common use of cloud technology in the coming future.
