This IDC study provides forecasts for 2015–2019 for storage infrastructure used for public and private cloud deployments and discusses major trends related to storage in the cloud. The proliferation of cloud services is one of the most significant forces that continue to shape the enterprise storage systems market. These services lead to the overall shift in datacenter strategies, which integrate public cloud services and/or implement private cloud deployments and drive the overall shift in the market demand for enterprise storage systems.
"Cloud is not only yet another delivery model supporting existing storage workloads — it is an essential enabler for development and proliferation of a broad range of next-generation applications and services," says Natalya Yezhkova, research director, Storage Systems. "This fast-growing market also brings new demands for storage infrastructure and for economics of storage infrastructure, leading to significant shifts across the entire storage industry ecosystem from supply chain to technology domain to supplier business models."
