Cloud Storage has been benefiting millions of us for over a year now and nowadays there are other ways to benefit from the world of cloud storage, in fact there’s a profit to be made for anyone willing to take a punt. For example there is a exchange-traded fund dedicated to the cloud – ‘The First Trust ISE Cloud Computing Index Fund’ (SKYY), which is a volatile, yet profitable market. It is expected that the cloud storage market in total will be worth $101.2 billion in 2012, therefore there must be investment opportunities in the cloud storage market, but which investment would be the best? One option wuold be to invest in companies that are already investing in cloud storage, such as IBM who have been snapping up cloud storage firms like there’s no tomorrow, and if the cloud storage firms are going to increase in worth, then so will their holding companies. Alternatively, you could invest in the physical side of the cloud, and although this sounds contradictive it makes perfect sense. All of the data stored by cloud storage companies has to live somewhere, and this is where data centres come into play. Current investment in data centres yields around 4% annually, thus proving that cloud storage has some very attractive investment opportunities.
