• The enterprise IT landscape has been marked by the dramatic growth in data; and one of the key issue facing enterprises today, whether big or small, is efficient storage of this ever growing data. While the traditional storage solutions have proved to be inadequate to cater to this monumental increase, the market is witnessing the increasing demand for alternative and more importantly disruptive storage solutions. However, with the incoming of cloud and server-based storage and the hyper-converged and converged infrastructure along with the application of real-time analytics, the deployment and consumption of storage solutions are being redefined. Research reveals that while the smaller enterprises which are on the lookout for cost effective solution that delivers greater agility are shifting to SaaS applications and cloud-based storage; medium and large enterprises are adopting a hybrid strategy, retaining a significant amount of storage capacity on-premises. In light of the above mentioned developments, it is imperative for enterprises to constantly stay in pace with the trends shaping the industry and hence collaborate with storage solution providers who not only enable enterprises to leverage cutting edge technologies but also remain flexible in an increasingly dynamic environment.
