More than eight out of ten UK companies currently store some or all of their data in the cloud, according to a new survey from the Cloud Industry Forum (CIF).
Published on May 12th, the research found that 84 per cent of firms have now adopted one or more cloud services - up from 78 per cent in June 2014 and an increase of 75 per cent since 2010.
Furthermore, CIF forecast that this momentum will be maintained over the summer thanks to the end of support for Windows Server 2003, which 58 per cent of its respondents were still using.
Almost four-fifths (77 per cent) reported that their cloud deployment decisions were driven by infrastructure refresh cycles.
“While first-time adoption is likely to slow somewhat, penetration of cloud services within organisations ... will continue unencumbered,” said CIF chief executive Alex Hilton.
As much as this will cut costs and boost agility for many companies, increased cloud adoption may also give rise to more complex data recovery scenarios than those that occur within on-premise IT.
