With most emerging technologies, the hype is bigger than the reality. A welcome exception is cloud storage, which is enabling many organizations to achieve major economies of scale and greater control of growing data volumes.

2. Shift storage costs from a capital expenditure to an operational expenditure, freeing capital to support other parts of the business.
