Comprehensive analysis of specific technologies, markets and economic drivers for the enterprise storage landscape.

  • Storage Market Map 2017

    The storage universe continues to expand by generating new vendors and technologies, while the largest industry players are currently prioritizing developments in all-flash, hyperconverged, object and cloud storage, and data resiliency. This report defines the main storage market segments, and the position of almost 170 vendors in those segments.


  • Growing Disaster Recovery Needs Change the Role of Data Backup

    Data protection in the form of backup and recovery remains one of the key tools in a company's disaster recovery/business continuity toolbox. However, the increasing adoption of cloud-based IT options has also added a new set of challenges for managing and protecting business processes that can extend beyond the datacenter. There's an increasing need for contingency plans that address the potential loss of mission-critical services, as well as the applications and data itself.


  • M&A Outlook 2017: Semiconductors, Systems and Storage

    Even after a recent record tech M&A run, dealmakers still had ambitious shopping plans in 2016. Across the globe, tech acquirers announced $500bn worth of transactions in the just-completed year, ranking 2016 as the second-highest annual total since the internet bubble burst. More than any other year, 2016 saw an expansion of buyers beyond the 'usual suspects,' as old-line companies got caught up in transforming their businesses through M&A.

  • 2017 Trends in Storage

    Though storage is still a lucrative market, change is coming from disruptive technologies such as flash and object storage. Established vendors are being pressured to adapt to new customer requirements, including cloud computing. Provisioning speed and efficiency improvements are top of mind for many stakeholders.


  • The Flash Revolution Is Far From Over

    Since flash memory first began to see mainstream datacenter use around about 10 years ago, it has been progressively rescuing storage from its status as the performance bottleneck of IT. However, the transformation is far from complete; both flash and the way it is used are still evolving.


  • Storage Market Map 2016

    The storage market is exploding with new vendors and the largest players in the industry are prioritizing innovation in the areas of all-flash arrays, object storage, data resiliency and cloud storage. This report defines the main storage market segments and the position of 165 different vendors.


  • Object Storage Re-Invents Itself Without Even Trying

    Since it was developed in 1996, object storage has been pigeonholed as a slow, cheap and deep archiving technology. Now, modern 'unified' object storage is experiencing a renaissance as one of the most flexible, scalable and powerful storage platforms for offering file, block and cloud-friendly object connectivity, as well as serving as the underlying technology for practically every distributed software-defined storage platform currently available. But this is only scratching the surface of what a metadata-rich storage architecture can ultimately offer in terms of granular storage management and data insight.
