Public Cloud Spend Shows No Fear of Recession, According to Wasabi 2023 Global Cloud Storage Index
Enterprises are going all-in on cloud storage, with average stored capacity in the public cloud expected to reach 43% of their total storage footprint by 2024, and the vast majority (84%) are increasing their budgets to make that a reality, according to part one of Wasabi's 2023 Global Cloud Storage Index. The series, commissioned by Wasabi Technologies and conducted by Vanson Bourne, seeks to uncover the changing attitudes toward public cloud storage adoption, the factors that influence storage buying decisions, and the top priorities when it comes to budget, use cases, security, and cloud data migration.
"The world is storing more capacity in the public cloud than ever before, and enterprises are adopting multiple cloud storage providers in an attempt to maximize both performance and cost efficiencies," said Andrew Smith, senior manager of strategy and market intelligence at Wasabi Technologies, and a former IDC analyst. "We also gathered important data to inform understanding of new trends: the fact that more than 50% of organizations exceed their budgeted spend on cloud storage; and that many struggle with security due to inadequate training and user experience with cloud storage."

Wasabi commissioned independent market research agency Vanson Bourne to conduct research into cloud storage.
The study surveyed 1,000 IT decision makers who had at least some involvement in or responsibility for public cloud storage purchases in their organization. The research took place in November and December 2022 from organizations with more than 100 employees across all public and private sectors. All interviews were conducted using a rigorous multi-level screening process to ensure that only suitable candidates were given the opportunity to participate.
Parts 2 and 3 of the Wasabi Global Cloud Storage Index will focus specifically on EMEA and Asia-Pacific markets, which have their own unique cloud storage challenges.
