Cloud Economics Drive the IT Infrastructure of Tomorrow
The cloud continues to dominate IT as businesses make their infrastructure decisions based on cost and agility. Public cloud, where shared infrastructure is paid for and utilized only when needed, is the most popular model today.

In fact, data reduction delivers unique benefits to each model of cloud deployment.
