Market Report Description

The Global Cloud Native Storage Market size is expected to reach $41.9 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 22.3% CAGR during the forecast period.

A new approach to create and run software applications is termed, cloud native. Some examples of cloud-native include cloud computing, containerization, serverless architectures, and microservices. A storage solution created specifically for use in a cloud-native environment is known as cloud-native storage.

Cloud Native Storage Market - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2018-2028

In cloud-native environments based on Kubernetes or other cloud native infrastructure, a cloud-native storage platform offers responses to ongoing data storage concerns as well as data management for domain-specific applications. New product storage technology, block storage, or conventional disc drives can all be used as the basis for object storage solutions in a distributed architecture.

The capacity to access data in the event of a breakdown, whether it be in the storage medium, controller, transmission system or any other component, is known as storage system availability. Storing redundant copies of data on another storage device, managing failover to redundant devices in case of failure, and fixing and restoring broken components are the three components of storage availability.

An increase in the investment in cutting-edge technology is the main element driving the growth of the market for cloud-native storage. Due to the necessity of Kubernetes, the cloud infrastructure stack has been greatly reduced in terms of cloud native storage and object storage, which allows network as well as portable storage.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Compared to the pre-COVID-19 situation, a greater demand for file storage systems is anticipated. During the forecast period, it is anticipated that the impact of Covid-19 will cause a noticeably high rate of market growth. As businesses transition to remote working environments, employees may collaborate & stay connected owing to cloud-based solutions. With the growing use of collaboration as well as conferencing tools by the distant workforce, the COVID-19 pandemic hastened the adoption of cloud-based storage.

Market Growth Factors

Rising Need Of Automation In Application Updates

Businesses can build automated platforms for constant testing and deployment using cloud native architecture. Every six months or so, banks would conduct system changes that were very carefully planned out, and they would tell consumers in advance of any projected downtime by publishing on banking websites. The majority of banking and financial apps, on the other hand, would probably update every week or even each day if they had native cloud storage, without having to halt operation or alert users.

Faster Data Backup And Recovery Growing The Demand For Cloud Native Storage

Automation and adaptability in cloud native storage boost flexibility, dependability, and availability. The advantage of automation in cloud native storage is that if something goes wrong, lost data can be quickly restored without having to halt the service. Data handling with block storage is made easier by using cloud native storage, which includes features such as cross-cluster disaster recovery, automated updating, as well as volume encryption.

Market Restraining Factors

Network Use And Latency Problems With Public Cloud

There are latency issues with the public cloud while storing & receiving data. Losing end-to-end network control when data is collected in the public cloud, together with high latency, can have a disruptive impact on how apps operate. Similar network troubles on the side of the provider of cloud native storage could interrupt storage solutions, which eventually causes work to stop and major losses for businesses. Additional sources of latency issues include insufficient Internet bandwidth, remote data center locations, and high network traffic.

Component Outlook

Based on component, the cloud native storage market segmented into solutions (file storage, block storage, object storage), and services. In 2021, the solutions segment dominated the cloud native storage market by generating the maximum revenue share. This is because they provide unstructured data storage without the scaling issues associated with conventional file storage. Instead of managing data as files or folders, object storage handles data as objects, which are stored in a single, sizable repository that may be dispersed across several physical storage devices.

Organization Size Outlook

On the basis of organization size, the cloud native storage market is fragmented into large enterprises, and SMEs. In 2021, the large enterprise segment held the highest revenue share in the cloud native storage market. In comparison to SMEs, major organizations have adopted cloud native storage more quickly. The expansion of new technology, goods, services, and solutions is the cause of the low adoption costs. This is leading to the demand for cloud-native storage among SMEs and big businesses.

Deployment Type Outlook

By deployment type, the cloud native storage market is divided into public cloud and private cloud. The private cloud accounted a substantial revenue share in the cloud native storage market in 2021. Private cloud storage is frequently provisioned utilizing out-of-date storage infrastructure. The private cloud should perform the same for storage.

Vertical Outlook

Based on vertical, the cloud native storage market is classified into BFSI, government, healthcare, telecommunication & IT, manufacturing, energy & utilities, media & entertainment, retail & consumer goods, and other verticals. The telecom & IT segment generated a significant revenue share in the cloud native storage market in 2021. Many operators, as well as vendors, are adopting cloud native technology in the telecommunications industry. Although they have long been used by public cloud and IT businesses, the telecoms sector nevertheless faces some unique difficulties.
