[ESG Research Report] 2015 Data Storage Market Trends

In order to assess the current state and future direction of the data storage technology market, ESG surveyed IT and data storage professionals representing midmarket (100 to 999 employees) and enterprise-class (1,000 employees or more) organizations. All respondents were personally responsible for evaluating, purchasing, and managing data storage technology for their organization and were familiar with their organization’s data storage environment and/or strategy—including topics such as storage technology types in use, current storage challenges, and forward-looking data storage plans.

[ESG Blog] The Future of Data Storage and Management is Nigh!

You may have heard that Gene Amdahl recently died. I was reading some of the surrounding commentary and analysis, but—I am not sure whether this was cathartic, reassuring, or horrifying!—many of the things he predicted back in the 70s and 80s are only just happening now. And many of his predictions for what's still to be expected seem valid. I am not commentating as much on the fact that things take a long time to happen...more on the fact that our imagineering (as Disney would put it) isn't perhaps always as dramatic as we need in order to make big leaps forward.

[ESG Brief] Solid-state: Just Part of the Storage “Furniture”

It’s becoming increasingly hard, indeed inaccurate, to write about solid-state as something “special” in the storage world. It is, if you will, simply part of the standard furniture in a regular storage house. That said, apart from a few corner-cases that can be described as the IT super-rich, niche-needy, or, newly on this list, capacity-limited environments, solid-state is still likely to remain as a minority of the production storage capacity in most large environments, until there is another step-change in the media and therefore the economics. However that step-change has already occurred—and been realized—as far as economic I/O performance and bandwidth goes. That, together with a growing appreciation of the broader values of solid-state beyond just performance, is why it is already recognized as a part of the regular storage furniture.

“Not all data should be treated the same. The growing momentum of the Internet of Things (IoT), together with ever-increasing user-expectations and application-demands, means there is a pressing need for HCI platforms that are optimally built to manage the onslaught of disparate data,” said Mark Peters, an analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG).
