Unified storage platform users can draw significant growth benefits by adopting cloud computing, an expert has said.
Connectivity to a single system-based set-up can be made easier by incorporating cloud computing, according to Greg Schulz, founder of research and content generation company StorageIO.com.
Mr Schulz, who is also the author of Cloud and Virtual Data Storage Networking, said: "What that means is that unified storage will grow as a result of cloud, converged, dynamic, virtual and traditional usage - as it is very complementary to those scenarios."
It is beneficial to use cloud-based and virtualised platforms with unified storage systems as they are flexible, he said.
According to analysts, India will see a growth in cloud computing in the coming months and years, as an increasing number of companies in the country are adopting the technology.
