Overview of the global enterprise storage market
The global enterprise storage market is anticipated to grow rapidly and will post a CAGR of close to 16% during the forecast period. The increasing demand for the cloud-based storage will drive the growth prospects for the global enterprise storage market until the end of 2020. Cloud storage is known and considered to be an effective solution for enterprises worldwide. The size of commercial data varies between small-medium-sized enterprise (SMEs) and large enterprises and requires an efficient platform to store the huge amount of data. Also, with the growing amount of data generated through the Internet of thing (IoT), on-premise storage has become an expensive affair for enterprises. These factors compel the enterprises to move their data to the cloud storage (STaaS) by selecting service providers such as Amazon Web Service, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. Moreover, factors such as reduced cost, better scalability, and high availability have resulted in the increased demand for the cloud-based storage systems.
The growing demand for software-defined storage (SDS) is expected to drive the growth prospects for the global enterprise storage market in the forthcoming years. SDS is a data storage software that helps in data management, data protection, data placement, and input or output capabilities. Some of the factors responsible for its increasing demand is enhanced flexibility, scalability, and automation capabilities of an enterprise storage infrastructure. Also, it reduces the overall storage costs for enterprises by allocating storage resources efficiently.
