As per 451 Research, digital leaders are growingly moving to the cloud-native stack to process data into insight and value, Currently, 95% of the latest applications are developed in containers.
Gartner predicts that by 2025, 85% of global businesses will be operating containers in production, up from 35% in 2019.
But as per Pure Storage, while conventional, cloud-native, and cloud-based storage can strive to match the fluid nature of microservice applications deployed in containers, creating data resiliency, mobility, security, backup, and recovery a challenge, particularly in multi-cloud deployments.
Cloud-native applications are worthy of a storage service platform purpose-built to discuss these difficulties, which is where the procurement originates in.
