The amount of information that organizations need to manage and maintain on a daily basis is growing all the time. In light of that fact, handling increasing volumes of data requires corporations to find ways to boost their bandwidth, or else cloud storage and other digital resources could be slowed significantly due to mounting latency and throughput issues.

According to Ars Technica, the number of systems companies place in cloud infrastructure is also lending to slowdowns across the board. Email, file management and project collaboration projects all require network access, but trying to run all of these solutions at the same time could easily overload connections and cause server issues for personnel across the entire network. Setting different priority levels for various applications will help the most essential software run first, with lower-level programs gaining less network attention in order to keep processes running smoothly.

Market research by Forrester agreed that bandwidth and connectivity issues are major stumbling blocks for cloud storage success. The source stated that about half of companies that participated in the recent Building For The Future survey stated they had to make significant changes to their networks in order to facilitate cloud upgrades.
