Prediction No. 3: Customers will look for solutions that support an expanded selection of cloud providers.

There has been tremendous growth in software as a service (SaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) offerings by various cloud services providers, opening up new opportunities for customers to manage all their IT needs. As customers select myriad cloud services, one such opportunity is ensuring flexible backup and disaster recovery services. Having an “open” cloud-based backup and disaster recovery service for the most popular cloud services will be a key trend in 2014. Vendors who can easily integrate with or provide flexible cloud-based DRaaS services will surpass the competition and have a leading edge in a crowded marketplace.

The data protection industry saw its fair share of trends in 2013, from disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) to the increased adoption of cloud backup. As virtual and cloud offerings become more mainstream, companies are becoming more aggressive in how they purchase and leverage them. As such, “the customer” will very much influence the data protection trends we see emerge in the year ahead. Here are five data protection trends for 2014, as identified by backup and recovery provider Unitrends.
