Last year, Tintri conducted the State of Storage 2015 survey, gathering responses from over 1,000 data center professionals to triangulate the performance pain, capital expense stress and other problems that our peers face every day. We learned (for example) that 66 percent of respondents worked for organizations with more than 50 percent of workloads virtualized—and yet cost per gigabyte remained a bigger buying factor than cost per VM.
In the past twelve months, more than $2B was invested in storage companies and so it’s reasonable to expect that the landscape is changing. That’s precisely why we’re revisiting the State of Storage study, and intend to make it an annual report. We need to hear from you—your perspectives and priorities—and in return we’ll share the final results. You’ll see how well you’re keeping pace with peers, plus we’ll enter you to win an Apple Watch, just for participating.
To get a sense for the output of this effort, check out our State of Storage report from last year as well as our 2015 infographic. We’re excited to deliver interesting data points and actionable insights once again.
