Survey also reveals security concerns is the primary obstacle to adopting cloud storage for archiving
DUBLIN, IRELAND – October 20, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ – Savenet Solutions, a leading Dublin based cloud storage and DR company, in conjunction with Waterford Technologies, has recently completed a unique survey into the area of how Irish companies are archiving their data.
The survey was run over a three month period between June and August 2014, primarily to understand what Irish companies are doing to manage data archives and to gather opinions about the adoption of cloud storage for archiving.
Some of the key findings from the survey are:
• 58% of respondents were using Mailmeter by Waterford Technologies for their email archiving.
• Reducing backup times was listed as the single biggest benefit of archiving.
• The top three barriers to the adoption of cloud storage for archiving are:
• 54% of respondents said it was important that their data was held in Ireland, with 15% saying it was critically important.
Finally, when asked whether they were interested in taking archive data out of the in-house IT environment and into a cloud solution, the respondents said:
Lorcan Cunningham, CTO of Savenet said, “We conducted the survey over our social media channels and via email. The responses came from a broad spectrum of fifty organisations in the public and private sector giving us a good cross section of opinion.”
“The survey confirmed what we had largely suspected from dealing with customers in our day to day business; there tends to be a group of companies saying yes to cloud for as many IT functions as possible, and another that says no, with the majority of companies being in the middle and open to looking at where cloud services can remove certain unwanted tasks like archiving out of the in-house IT environment,” he said.
