Big data is a big driver, with 47% citing enterprise database/data warehouse pushing Tier 1 growth
SAN FRANCISCO, March 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Tech's InformationWeek Reports, a service provider for peer-based IT research and analysis, announced the release of its latest research report. The 2013 State of Storage report analyzes results from InformationWeek's poll of 314 business technology decision-makers, and features exclusive trending data.
InformationWeek polled more than 300 business technology professionals, all of them involved with storage at their organizations. Survey results reveal that Ethernet is taking off, with a combined year-over-year boost of 20 points in iSCSI and FCoE. Security saw gains as well: 60% now encrypt at least some stored data. And, good help is hard to find, as 26% cite insufficient staffing as a top concern, up from 19% in 2012.
The report author, Kurt Marko, is an IT industry veteran and an InformationWeek and Network Computing contributor.

"Reading between the lines of this survey, we see the virtualization and 'software-defined' trends finally giving storage admins better ways to optimize workloads," says Lorna Garey, content director of InformationWeek Reports. "Of course, it's still early days for SDN, but consolidation of storage and data networks mean that gains will benefit the entire infrastructure. Storage pros should be paying attention."
