INDEPENDENCE, Ohio – July 15, 2013 — / — United Computer Group, Inc. (UCG), an information technology services firm, is realizing significant growth as businesses across the nation still reliant on tape backup to protect their data are moving to cloud-based backup and disaster recovery solutions. For many companies, migration from tape backup has moved from the back burner to the number one business priority. As the demand for cloud services continues to grow, companies are making heavy investments to gain market share.

The public cloud services market is forecast to grow 18.5 percent in 2013 to total $131 billion worldwide, up from $111 billion in 2012, according to research firm Gartner, Inc. Infrastructure as a service (IaaS), including cloud compute, storage and print services, continued as the fastest-growing segment of the market, growing 42.4 percent in 2012 to $6.1 billion and expected to grow 47.3 percent in 2013 to $9 billion.

Cloud advertising continues to be the largest segment of the cloud services market, comprising 48 percent of the total market in 2012. Gartner predicts that from 2013 through 2016, $677 billion will be spent on cloud services worldwide and about half of that will be spent on cloud advertising. This shift in thinking comes as no surprise to United Computer Group, Inc. To support its fastgrowing cloud backup and disaster recovery business, VAULT400, United Computer Group, Inc. recently invested in an additional $1M of infrastructure. Likewise, UCG partner BlueBridge Networks recently announced a $6 million investment in technology to build the best network and facilities possible.

Some of the biggest challenges businesses are facing are compliance, effective utilization of cloud, high availability and uptime.
