By Ellen Messmer – “Rogue clouds” occur if sales and marketing people, for example, order up Salesforce.com without bothering to consult IT or set up Dropbox with outside vendors to share sensitive information. It’s happening to three-quarters of those using cloud, according to the survey, and it occurs more in large enterprises (83%) than in small to midsize ones (70%).

“There is a tremendous difference in this area between enterprises (which are utilizing 26% of their storage) and SMBs (which use a shockingly low 7%). This is a costly mistake, as organizations are paying for roughly six times as much storage as they actually need,” the survey report states.

“They’re overprovisioning cloud storage,” said Elliott. Another facet of the cloud storage issue is that much of the time no deduplication of data is done. more> http://tinyurl.com/b8scq8m
