Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Networking team said: 'The increase in digital content in enterprise networks is leading to complications in the storage architectures. Enterprises are adopting various storage technologies and integrating them to obtain an architecture which can support all types of data storage and retrieval. With the increasing demand for storage infrastructure, the frequently-accessed data is stored in the SAN architecture and long-term storage is supported over the NAS device. NAS devices are generally being used for timely backup of the storage and to maintain backup to support disaster recovery. The increased adoption of storage mediums and the need for data backup are leading to higher demand for NAS devices.'
According to the report, one of the major drivers is the need for cheaper and more efficient storage infrastructure of enterprises. Enterprises are upgrading their networks to support higher bandwidth and faster data transmission. To match the speed, enterprises are adopting NAS equipment for the storage of data.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges is the increased congestion in the networks due to the high density of traffic being transmitted across them. The transition from 8 Gbps networks to 10 Gbps networks is leading to clogging of the networks in places with lower bandwidth.
The report also includes a discussion of the other vendors operating in this market. The other vendors in the market are Oracle Corp., Buffalo Inc., Hitachi Data Systems Corp., Netgear Inc., SGI Corp., and LSI Corp.
