Survey: Indian firms gear up to save data with cloud
Indian enterprises are increasingly using cloud computing as a key component of their data protection plans, according to a survey commissioned by CA Technologies.
Conducted in May this year by research firm Coleman Parkes, the findings revealed that 53 percent of businesses see cloud as an important part of their disaster recovery (DR) and data protection strategies within the next year.
A total of 1,086 respondents from eight Asian countries participated. The surveyed participants comprised of small and medium enterprises (SMBs) and large organizations from four vertical sectors of finance, public sector, retail and manufacturing. The survey had 201 Indian companies.
“We are seeing many businesses use cloud for offsite back-up and DR. The survey indicates that many are now looking at a hybrid cloud model too,” says Vijayant Rai, Director Channel Sales, CA Technologies.
Fifty-nine percent of enterprises said that they will focus their investment on managing a hybrid cloud environment, while 30 percent plan to invest in using public cloud as a backup solution.
When asked about barriers to improving their data protection and DR operations, 38 percent of enterprises pointed to inadequate training of IT personnel, while lack of employee understanding of procedures and inadequate buy in from senior management garnered 34 percent responses each.
