This IDC study provides a forecast for spending in the Canadian disk storage systems market through 2019. Reviewing the underlying technological and market forces that shape this environment, IDC provides guidance to storage system vendors to assist in targeting growth areas of the market and abating the effects of the current global economic situation. Total disk storage systems spend grew to C$760.5 million in Canada in 2014 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2.5% through 2019.
"The Canadian DSS market has remained relatively steady in recent years, and low-single-digit growth will continue through the forecast cycle. Targeting that growth is the key for vendors, as it's not very evenly distributed — flash, SDDC, cloud, and Big Data will make up the lion's share, while traditional monolithic siloed storage continues a slow decline." — Dave Pearson, research manager, Enterprise Storage and Networking
