About Storage Software

Storage software is an effective tool used by enterprises to improve the control and management of storage hardware devices and networks. Storage software comprises all software products that are used for efficient data management and data storage in the enterprise infrastructure. Storage software can be used for device management, data transmission, data security, data recovery, backup, and retrieval of data. Organizations are increasingly investing in storage software because of the increasing number of servers, branches, and data they need to manage. In addition, storage software also supports the duplication and copying of data as soon as it is created or downloaded.

The analysts forecast the Global Storage Software market will grow at a CAGR of 4.74 percent over the period 2013-2018.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “Enterprise storage infrastructure has flash memory storage because of its plug-and-play feature. Enterprises implement arrays of hot-spare disks, which allow storage disks to be plugged in and out as and when required. This feature enables easier and faster scalability of the network storage infrastructure. The use of flash storage segments also simplifies the archiving of enterprise data. In addition, a flash storage software has an inbuilt feature that automatically backs up data at regular intervals.”

According to the report, several factors drive the growth of the Global Storage Software market, one of which is the rise in demand for storage virtualization. Virtualization enables additional features and better functionality within a storage system. Virtualization and categorized storage solutions together allow an organization to strategically coordinate and manage their business applications within the storage infrastructure. Storage virtualization allows non-disruptive data migrations and storage partitioning to confine different workloads.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges is the lack of structured storage infrastructure. Huge volumes of data are stored by enterprises and used as and when required. This data is important during the decision making processes. However, the lack of structured infrastructure can lead to financial losses for organizations.

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.
