Executive Summary

Despite a faltering global economy and flat or reduced IT budgets, data growth continues unabated. Such growth presents a major challenge for storage administrators as they need to accommodate it in addition to other IT initiatives - all with the same or fewer dollars than last year. ESG research has documented the fact that, despite the down economy and restricted budgets, about 75% of organizations will need to spend at least the same as last year - or more - on storage. With cutbacks in other areas, this means that a major portion of the IT CAPEX budget, up to 28%, will be spent on storage related equipment and projects.
