Cloud Subscription Growth Set To Triple In Next 5 years
According to HIS iSuppli Research, the personal cloud storage market is growing rapidly and has radically changed the way we use computers and mobile devices. The cloud allows users to automatically back up data and sync it across multiple devices.Cloud storage solutions have specific applications. They can backup your files and give you access to your music library. Cloud storage not only allows users to save copies of files, but it also allows users to collaborate on them. Users can separate music and photos from other files. Providers set storage limitations, so users will have to check storage limits before choosing a service. But the perks of buying a service are vast. Perks can include increased access to file version history and better security.
Not every service doubles as a file-syncing service. File-syncing has become a major component of online backup. OpenDrive offers users both online data backup and cloud storage in one. OpenDrive is a cloud-based drive accessible from any location. OpenDrive creates a virtual file system on your PC or mobile device that allows you to work with the files in your personal cloud.The difference between OpenDrive and other cloud storage services is that it has one single source of files in the cloud with the ability to access them from any device. Other services create multiple copies across connected devices or mirroring existing computer files.OpenDrive won TopTenReview’s Silver Award in 2011 and 2012 and given The Excellence Award, the highest ranking possible, in 2011. It was also named Brothersoft Editor’s Choice and Soft82’s 5-star award.
Sidera CEO sees more fiber network consolidation ahead
The $2 billion merger agreement announced last week that will combine Lightower Networks and Sidera Networks may be the largest consolidation of fiber-optic network services providers in recent memory, but it certainly won’t be the last, Sidera CEO Mike Sicoli believes.Both Sidera and Lightower reached their current size via a series of acquisitions (see, for example "Lightower Fiber Networks to acquire Lexent Metro Connect" and "Sidera Networks to acquire Long Island Fiber Exchange"). With asset combination part of their companies' respective DNAs, Sicoli revealed in an interview today that he and Lightower CEO Rob Shanahan had discussed the potential benefits of joining forces “for a couple of years.” Meanwhile, investment firm Berkshire Partners, which will write the check for most of the $2 billion that will support the merger (Berkshire will buy both companies, then put them together), had been looking to buy into the fiber network services space for a while, Sicoli said.“It just sort of happened that existing Lightower shareholders were ready to transact, Berkshire was ready to pull the trigger, Sidera was ready to throw in its piece, and it all came together,” Sicoli said in describing the timing of the current deal.The combined assets will create a larger footprint (the only significant network overlap is in Manhattan, Sicoli asserted) that will enable the new company to offer more services, faster, to existing and new customers. “It’s the network effect of having a bigger network. It gives you a chance to deepen customer relationships, offering more to customers,” Sicoli explained. “By unlocking the synergies, both from a network perspective and a cost perspective, it enables the company to have more resources to expand the network even further.”And expansion is certainly in the cards, Sicoli said – which means the space can expect further consolidation. “It’s a scale business, telecom. So I think the consolidation of these smaller, regional players is somewhat inevitable,” he predicted. “Zayo has done a lot to accelerate the pace of that. But there are a lot of chips still on the table to roll up.”Once the merger completes, the new company should become an engine of such consolidation, Sicoli said. “I think this combination creates a more formidable player to compete for those assets and not just have it be a Zayo-only roll-up strategy. I know that the Berkshire guys and Rob very much intend for this to be a platform to roll up additional players in the space,” he said.Which dominoes fall next will depend on company strategy as well as a bit of serendipity, Sicoli believes. “I think the desire would be to do something regionally that makes sense, as opposed to sort of jumping over and buying a random asset on the West Coast or in the Midwest,” he explained. “But you never know. Sometimes you have to take the deal flow as it comes and when it’s available.”Sicoli said it is unlikely he’ll still be with the company when those decisions must be made; Shanahan has already been named CEO of the combined company, which won’t need two CEOs, Sicoli said wryly. Other executive appointments have not been made yet, but Sicoli said he expects “significant representation” from both the current Sidera and Lightower executive teams.
