Application cloud storage , August 2018 review

Overview

Application cloud storage encompasses a wide array of technologies designed to accommodate everything thing from business intelligence databases, mobile apps, big data analysis to run-of-the-mill disk drives for generic application storage.

Are you looking for a turn-key cloud storage solution for your application that doesn't 'break the bank' in the process ? Do you know what 99.9%, 99.999% or 99.99999% cloud storage availability is and for what applications do these percentages even matter ? Are you looking for the best cloud storage IOPS (Input/output operations per second) per dollar ? No matter your requirements, we've got you covered with an extensive analysis of the leading application cloud storage providers and their offerings.

Up next, the leading application cloud storage services are grouped into various segments to make your selection process easier. If you want to make a more data-driven decision on your own, toward the end there's a grid with all the application cloud storage options and their features, which is used to create the following application cloud storage segments.
