TechNavio today launched its report Global SMB Network-attached Storage Market 2011-2015 based on an in-depth study covering the Americas, and the EMEA and APAC regions. The report aims to aid decision makers’ understanding of the present and future landscape of the market.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s Networking team said; “With the increasing need for higher storage and the increasing amount of digital content in the enterprises, there is a need for better ways to store the complex data in the enterprises. Enterprises are implementing object-based storage, which uses the concept of block storage and a pointer table for storing the location of the data. This increases the efficiency of the storage and removes the redundancy of digital data in the enterprises. Furthermore, with the interoperability of operating systems, a common storage mechanism had to be implemented, and this methodology was found to be very efficient among all the other mechanisms.”
According to the report, with the rapid technological developments in Network-attached storage (NAS) devices, an increasing number of features are being incorporated in the servers. The evolution of NAS servers is leading to high-performance servers being implemented across enterprises. The servers that have NAS devices attached to them are capable of addressing large numbers of client requests in a single instance. The service capability of the servers increases considerably and a reduction in the latency period is observed. The responses are received more quickly and high-performance computing is supported across the network. The response time is faster because these storage devices are connected to the local area network (LAN), but they have a slower response time than the local disk storage.
Further, the report discusses that the Global Small and Medium-sized Business (SMB) NAS market is facing the major challenge of clogged networks, which is affecting the end-users of the networks.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key players. SHOW LESS READ MORE >
