Managed Comms ready for rise in SDSL uptake
Increase in SDSL expected as cloud computing takes off
Cloud computing is on the increase – potentially meaning a big rise in business for SDSL providers such as Managed Comms.
For those not in the know, cloud computing is the outsourcing of data storage to other companies for a cost. It means companies do not have to pick up expensive hardware solutions in order to look after important information.
According to research company TechMarketView, the cloud computing industry is currently worth just 7.5 per cent of the £8billion UK market for software but it will rise to around £1.2billion by 2012. For this to occur, two times as many consumers and businesses will be signing up with SDSL providers like Managed Comms in order to use Google Apps and other web-based services.
Phillip Carnelley, senior analyst at TechMarketView, claimed the increase comes due to a shift in how software is used: “In the old days, big companies used to generate their own electricity. But they do not do that anymore. Software is going the same way - let others do the processing. This is not just analysts hyping things up. It is a genuine shift.”
SDSL providers can therefore expect an increase in business, as firms will look to take out leased line connections with high upload speeds in order to ensure their data remains safe and can be quickly moved between locations.
