INDUSTRY AND THE PROFESSION
CLOUD STORAGE UPSWING PREDICTED
If you're looking for growth areas in the IT market, it might be wise to keep an eye on cloud computing vendors. According to tech analysis firm Gartner, Inc. (
www.gartner.com), external controller-based disk storage
companies should see industry revenues grow from today's $417.3 million to $1.45 billion in 2015 — a nifty 56
percent increase from 2010. To be specific, Gartner defines "external cloud" as "any public, private, or hybrid
cloud that is offered by a third-party provider that services multiple customers." This excludes individual
organizations' internal data centers. Gartner bases its predictions on the belief that "with the exception of a
few extremely large cloud providers, such as Google, Amazon, and Facebook, which have deep pockets for
internal R&D to develop their own storage infrastructure with commodity hardware, enterprise-focused external
cloud providers will prefer commercial ECB storage technologies over homegrown storage hardware
