About Enterprise NAS

A NAS device is a computer storage device that is connected to a network to provide data storage and data retrieval/file-sharing services for heterogeneous clients and authorized network users. NAS devices allow several computers to simultaneously share the same storage space. By connecting a high-capacity NAS device to a network, all devices/computers in the network can easily gain access to the stored data simultaneously or can retrieve/use the stored data if needed. By using NAS solutions in homes and businesses, users can increase the storage capacity of each device connected to the NAS device. NAS solutions are also highly scalable, which makes it easy to add extra storage space to NAS devices to increase storage capacity if needed.

The analysts forecast the Global Enterprise NAS market will grow at a CAGR of 25.44 percent over the period 2013-2018.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “There is a fine line between NAS and SAN solutions; however, it is possible to create a hybrid solution that contains both these technologies. The SAN and NAS hybrid solution simplifies storage administration and adds flexibility to the system. It is also easier to replace and reconfigure faulty servers when SAN architecture is used in the solution. Hybrid solutions are also used in data centers to keep the pace of data flow at its normal rate. The hybrid SAN and NAS solution also provides a more effective disaster recovery process. The Fiber Channel over IP and iSCSI protocols has been developed to support this hybrid solution over IP networks. Hence, along with the NAS market, the SAN market is also being influenced by this hybrid solution. ”

According to the report, an increase in the volume of structured and unstructured data in enterprises is one of the main drivers. Enterprise applications are generating large volumes of data, and the same is expected to continue during the forecast period. The majority of corporate data sources include the data generated from enterprise applications, along with newly generated cloud-based data and social network data.
Further, the report states that the increasing popularity of cloud-based network storage solutions is one of the main challenges. Network storage facilities are also being provided with a cloud-based solution, thereby providing various options that are not available in NAS solutions.

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 vendors.
