According to the industry analyst firm IT Brand Pulse, the public cloud storage-as-a-service market is growing at approximately 25% per year, and by 2020 will capture 25% of a massive $50 billion in enterprise storage spending. The rapid transition from traditional CapEx storage to as-a-service solutions is due to the scalability, elasticity and economic benefits of OpEx-based storage-as-a-service. "At IT Brand Pulse, we believe that the rapid growth Zadara Storage is enjoying is due to their excellent product/market fit," said Frank Berry, CEO IT Brand Pulse. "Users are tired of the traditional model of purchasing and managing storage, and Zadara Storage has a unique, world-class storage-as-a-service solution, providing enterprise-grade storage that is also fully managed."

However, they are quickly realizing that traditional Capital Expense-based (CapEx) storage does not meet their scalability and cost targets.

Zadara Storage, the provider of enterprise-class storage-as-a-service (STaaS), and Lightstream today announced that Zadara’s award-winning Virtual Private Storage Array (VPSA) platform is now available as part of a new Lightstream storage-as-a-service offering.

Industry research has shown that the storage-as-a-service market will grow from about 10% of the overall storage market in 2015, to as much as 80% or more by 2023 (source: IT Brand Pulse, October 2015). IT professionals are recognizing that the traditional Capital Expense (CapEx) model of capacity acquisition and management cannot keep up with the data storage needs of today’s enterprise. Instead, IT organizations are being asked to reduce costs while at the same time provide immediately available, agile, and reliable enterprise-grade storage. The historical model of evaluating potential vendors, buying, installing and maintaining disk arrays and then repeating the cycle every 3-5 years cannot support this goal.
