LONDON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 19, 2015 — TechNavio, a tech-focused research firm, has published a list of the Top 12 Companies in the Global Software Defined Storage (SDS) Market.
SDS is storage virtualization that separates services such as data management, data protection and I/O capabilities from the underlying storage infrastructure. This helps increase the flexibility, scalability, and automation of enterprise storage infrastructure.
“SDS helps reduce overall storage costs for enterprises,” says Faisal Ghaus, Vice President of TechNavio.
“The technology enhances resource pooling, abstraction and automated management in storage infrastructure, and offers support for legacy applications, cloud-based services, and big data analytics.”
The Global SDS Market was valued at just over US$1.5 billion in 2014, and this number is expected to swell to more than US$6.8 billion by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 35.20 percent.
Key vendors in the market, including VMware, DataCore and Hitachi Data Systems, are working to offer storage systems that combine SSDs, HDDs and flash-based caches, as SDS-enabled flash-based storage is expected to gain popularity with enterprises through the projected period.
“SDS-enabled flash-based storage is expected to gain increased market traction during the forecast period because it uses enhanced optimization strategies, and provides new options for data center design, virtualization of big data workloads, and high performance and scalability,” says Ghaus.
