This IDC study examines market shares of enterprise DSS for the top 7 vendors in Canada. It updates Canadian Disk Storage Systems 2013 Vendor Shares (IDC #CA7CIC14, June 2014).
"Vendors in the Canadian enterprise DSS space can't expect more than low-single-digit growth in this market through the next five years. There is plenty of growth in storage, but most of it is found in submarkets such as flash-based storage, storage software, cloud, and hyperscale environments, as well as in particular workloads such as Big Data. The competitive nature of the DSS market in Canada will only become more exaggerated as vendors all have capable offerings in this space," says Dave Pearson, research manager for Enterprise Storage and Networking at IDC Canada.
