Canadian Enterprise Storage Systems Market Shares, 2017: Smaller and Niche Vendors Making Waves in Canada
This IDC study examines market shares of enterprise storage systems for the top 6 vendors in Canada, and it updates Canadian Enterprise Storage Systems Market Shares, 2016: Can Consolidation Cure Cloud's Continuous Constraints? (IDC #CA41970317, October 2017).
"Canada has not seen nearly the shift in storage deployment methodologies that have been experienced in the United States," says Dave Pearson, research manager for Enterprise Storage and Networking at IDC Canada. "There will certainly be greater reliance on cloud storage to come, and more penetration of server-based and ODM storage in hyperscale deployments here, but for now, the battle for traditional arrays is still heated. Niche vendors addressing key workloads are still experiencing growth, and traditional OEMs are looking to build or buy these same capabilities, especially around flash, hyperconverged, and object storage."
