Overview of the standalone cloud storage market 
The increase in data volumes generated by business enterprises has driven the need for more efficient data storage options worldwide. The cloud has emerged as the most effective alternative for the traditional on-premise storage. Here, enterprises can lease their storage infrastructure to a standalone cloud storage service provider to store their business data thereby reducing their operational expenditure. The global standalone cloud storage market is predicted to grow rapidly at a rate of nearly 31% during the forecast period.

The Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC) requirements specified by the different governments worldwide are also driving the growth of this market. For instance, in China, it is mandatory to record all bank transactions in the country and present it to the concerned authority on demand. Cloud storage addresses these huge volume requirements while also enabling easy monitoring and performance analysis services.

Segmentation of the cloud computing market by storage

  •     Public
  •     Private
  •     Hybrid

In a public cloud-based storage model, enterprise resources are accessed over the internet after verification of user credentials and are offered on a pay-as-you-go subscription model. Due to the high-risk factor to external threats this model is not recommended for storing critical data.

Private cloud-based storage models provide a dedicated storage environment to enterprises. They are more secure when compared to the public storage models, and the user has more control over resources such as servers, storage, and networks. Private cloud-based model is classified into on-premise private storage cloud and externally hosted private cloud storage.

Segmentation of the global standalone cloud storage market by geography

  •     Americas
  •     EMEA
  •     APAC

The Americas dominated the standalone cloud storage market, with a share of nearly 50% of the market. Most of the leading vendors worldwide are based out of this region and around 60% of the enterprises in this region have adopted cloud-based services. The Americas is predicted to witness a steady growth during the forecast period.

The EMEA region is the second largest contributor to the standalone cloud storage market with the majority of the revenue coming from Western Europe. It’s estimated that the European business enterprises would spend around $8 billion in 2015 for cloud-based services alone. The APAC region has seen steady growth in the standalone cloud storage market with countries like Japan, China, and India emerging as the key contributors.
