IDC Market Spotlight - Application-Aware Storage for Virtual Environments and Cloud Deployments
As the IT industry struggles with explosive data growth while managing an infrastructure buildout to handle the dynamic demands of mobile, social media, big data and analytics, and cloud, major storage challenges have arisen. It is clear that legacy storage architectures are not able to cost- effectively meet the demands for performant, scalable, efficient, and agile storage. The ability to provision, tune, and manage storage in an easy, intuitive manner is becoming more important. The need for "application-aware storage" is emerging, and IDC believes that this will become a central tenet in the next-generation storage platform that is designed specifically to deal with the needs of virtual infrastructures.
