Customers Want to Talk about Enterprise Class Storage in the Cloud—Be Ready to Help

Enterprise Cloud Storage

Worldwide spending on public cloud services could double from almost $70 billion in 2015 to over $141 billion in 2019, according to research firm IDC. IDC expects Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) solutions to grow faster than Software as a Service (SaaS) platforms.

This resonates with what we have been hearing from Dell EMC customers as they grow their cloud footprint and progress in their respective digital transformation projects.

This explosion in the consumption of cloud services and digital transformation projects creates a natural and urgent need for enterprise class storage in the cloud. And now Dell EMC partners can give their customers a competitive and differentiated solution with Virtustream Storage Cloud—a hyper-scale storage platform built for resiliency, performance and transformation.
