File Sync Services Crossed the Chasm in 2011, and Are Exploding in 2012
SAN MATEO, CA, Jul 25, 2012 – /BackupReview.info/ – Cloud provider SugarSync announced today that a new commissioned study from Forrester Consulting was released tracking the exponential growth of Personal Cloud services over the last three years. The study, commissioned on behalf of SugarSync, surveyed over 2,000 people to track usage of a broad range of Personal Cloud services including file access, sync and share services, online backup services, and online office productivity. The new research reveals that adoption of file access, sync, and share services grew by two thirds from 9% of U.S. online adults in 2010 to 15% in 2012 to become the fastest-growing online file service category.
“Personal Cloud services are transforming personal computing, as U.S. individuals move to store their files on online services accessible from any device, rather than fiddle with files to get them on the right PC or mobile device of the moment. The growth of a rich personal computing ecosystem of PCs, mobile devices, Internet-connected appliances, and a myriad of online services is spurring this transformation of personal computing into a Personal Cloud services ecosystem.” Forrester Consulting, “Personal Cloud Services Emerge To Orchestrate Our Mobile Computing Lives,” July 25, 2012.
Key findings of this report include:
“At SugarSync, we’ve already seen the number of devices our average customer uses increase from 1.5 to over 4 in the past three years, and our user base grow between 400 and 600 percent year-over-year,” said Laura Yecies, CEO of SugarSync. “Based on the feedback we receive from our customers and the findings from this survey, it is clear that the way we all access our data and files has changed. We continue to facilitate that change by giving our users the best mobile Cloud experience available, regardless of what device they have in their hands.”
