Quiz: Cloud-based data storage trends

Storing data in every corporate branch is expensive and hinders performance. Are you up to date on current cloud-based data storage trends? Take this short quiz and find out.

For organizations that have isolated storage pools in each branch office or remote location, consolidating all that storage in the cloud simplifies file sharing, tightens version control, enhances security, reduces hardware expenditures, and almost certainly improves worker and customer satisfaction. Even so, many businesses are migrating data to the cloud reluctantly -- or sometimes not at all. Take this brief quiz to determine if you're already part of the future of cloud-based data storage or still clinging to the past. Wherever on the spectrum your cloud efforts fall, from noticeable to negligible, you are most assuredly not alone.

I’m a little surprised that enterprise storage spending is only expected to grow to 17% by 2017.
