In today’s day and age, the cloud is an incredibly important tool used by hundreds of thousands of businesses across the globe. Whether they are giants in their respective industries to even the smallest of new startups, businesses rely on cloud tools now more than ever. Nearly half of businesses store their most sensitive data on the cloud, half of all business workloads run in the cloud, and a whopping 92% of businesses use more than one cloud system. According to recent research from Nasuni, there is over 1 exabyte of data currently stored in the cloud – equivalent to over a billion gigabytes of data. 

Despite the massive growth and the importance of the cloud, nearly 80% of businesses report larger and larger gaps in visibility into their cloud infrastructure and overall cloud operations. This vital tech has become clouded with all sorts of incompatible, short-sighted, and limited tools. This massively restricts the functionality of such an important piece of tech and makes maintenance into a nightmare for IT professionals and software engineers.
