Mimicking global trends, South Africa can expect an increased demand for cloud storage on the back of several trends including Microsoft’s recent Azure announcement. It is estimated that more than 50% of global information is now housed in a cloud and according to Brent Cary, regional sales manager, Genetec Inc., a leading innovator of open architecture, IP-based security systems, this trend will continue through sub-Saharan Africa. He says that the physical security industry will see an increased demand for video surveillance as a result of the local cloud storage options. This high demand for cloud-based storage, he says, is largely related to an increase in enterprise data and this trend will propel the sector as a whole forward for another five years.
