Looks like SMBs have their heads in the clouds, and will for the foreseeable future. According to findings by Kaseya, MSPs report that as many as 75% of client workloads will be cloud-based over the next three years. This is a  fairly significant 25% increase from 2021. 

Because of the mass migration to the cloud during Covid-19, services are continuing to evolve rather rapidly post-pandemic. In fact, a whopping 95% of MSPs have identified market opportunities in cloud integration. Why? Better storage design and implementation, improved productivity and collaboration across teams for clients, to name a few reasons. 

The findings also reveal 90% of MSPs now offer cloud-based infrastructure design and management. This points directly to the fact that SMB businesses are eager to move away from on-premise solutions. To make the most of IaaS solutions, the businesses that have leveraged this software have moved all types of workloads to the cloud. This means 77% email servers and 77% database servers.

Of course, as with any fast change, some organizations remain on the fence about adopting cloud-based solutions. There are likely many reasons for this, the primary ones being compliance, security or budgetary concerns.

“These research figures are demonstrative of the rapid acceleration and acceptance among businesses of cloud technology,” said Chris McKie, vice president of product marketing for security and networking solutions, Kaseya. “More are witnessing the benefits of cloud applications, including easier collaboration between employees and improved productivity. However, MSPs must not only communicate the advantages of the cloud, but help to ease the continued fears among businesses around compliance and security.”
