For many IT professionals, navigating cloud provider offerings is second nature. What was once on the brink of innovation in hosted applications and infrastructure is now considered commonplace, and cloud administrators and architects are beginning to get creative, developing dynamic approaches to make the most of modern IT.

Despite growing comfort in the cloud among IT teams across industries, 84 percent of cloud administrators and architects believe cloud data is backed up by the cloud provider. Put another way: A majority of those responsible for maintaining cloud-based data remain uncertain about who is liable for its integrity and recovery.
