TechNavio Announces the Publication of its Report – Global DAS Market 2011-2015
TechNavio today launched its report Global DAS 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 the future landscape of the market.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s Networking team said; “The main trend in the Global Direct Attached Storage (DAS) market is that it is losing its share in the Global External Storage market. Companies are growing at a rapid pace, and so is data. In DAS solutions, storage expansion has started to become a big challenge because of lack of scalability. Fiber channel storage area network (SAN) is expensive but with the introduction of IP SAN, which costs less than fiber channel SAN, there is growth of demand for SAN. Network attached storage (NAS) solutions, too, are not very expensive, and are highly scalable. Thus, because of the rising popularity of other storage systems, the Global DAS market has been shrinking over the past few years.”
According to the report, the economic cost of DAS solutions is the main factor that is driving the Global DAS market. DAS solutions are priced very low compared to SAN and NAS solutions. Many small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have limited resources and hence prefer to minimize investments so that liquid cash can be maintained for day-to-day expenses. In such cases, DAS is the ideal solution because it is an economical storage solution. It is connected to the server directly and hence the cost is very low and almost similar to that of hard drives that have a capacity of 2 TB.
Further, the report also discusses that the main challenge faced by DAS is its lack of scalability.
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.
