Worldwide File-Based Storage Forecast, 2018–2022: Storage by Deployment Location

This IDC study provides historical data as well as a forecast (2018–2022) for worldwide file-based storage across several deployment locations. IDC expects that organizations will invest in a multicloud/private cloud approach wherein storage resources from various cloud services are deployed in support of different workloads. "File services in the cloud is garnering a lot of traction across enterprises today. However, the adoption is in its nascent stages," said Amita Potnis, research manager, IDC's Storage Systems program. "As partnerships with traditional file system vendors and public cloud increases and enterprises are offered a choice of file system on public cloud, adoption will most certainly increase."
