Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “The main trend witnessed by the Global Enterprise NAS market is the increased adoption of NAS devices/solutions from SMEs. There is an increasing demand for low-end NAS solutions and for backup and file sharing services without incurring additional overhead costs. NAS products are inexpensive, very powerful, and have lower installation and maintenance costs, and thus help end-users meet these and other data storage requirements. Enterprises in developing countries are also interested in adopting these solutions. The increased adoption of NAS solutions by SMEs is expected to increase in the coming years, which will add to the growth of the Global Enterprise NAS market.”
According to the report, the main factor which is driving Global Enterprise NAS market is the improved cost-efficiency of NAS solutions. Profitability is vital for any business in any sector, and companies need to make cost reductions to achieve this profitability. This can be achieved by using NAS servers/solutions. A NAS server can be accessed through the TCP/IP linkage in graphical user interface mode. It also requires lesser number of IT professionals for its management and configuration.
Further, the report states that one major challenge faced by the market is the reliability of NAS solutions. Using a NAS solution to store/access sensitive data could be an issue as it is not a highly available and reliable solution. Some high-end NAS systems provide mirroring and replication options required for critical systems, but NAS is intended for file sharing and not large data block sharing.
