Moving to the cloud is becoming a necessity. Organizations need to increase support for remote workers and move business- critical applications to the cloud, all while cutting costs. In many cases, cloud storage is a major roadblock for moving applications to the cloud. Applications need more storage every year and they require terabytes of data. You are at the mercy of your cloud provider. Also, applications often need performance from storage, in which cloud storage vendors will again require you to purchase more storage to gain performance.
