Customers Highly Satisfied with the Use of Enterprise NVMe Technology in Production Environments
This IDC study focuses on how enterprises with NVMe technology already deployed are using it. It explores purchase criteria, deployment methodologies, vendor selection, target workloads, customers' level of satisfaction with it, and future deployment plans. It also explores customer interest in and perception of storage-class memory technologies. Based on IDC's NVMe Survey conducted in May 2018, readers of this document — line-of-business managers and IT management as well as those more specifically responsible for storage purchase decisions and day-to-day administration — will find useful information they can use when planning their own strategies around NVMe.
"NVMe is the future of primary enterprise storage, and many IT organizations — both cloud service providers and enterprises — are already integrating it into their environments for production workloads," said Eric Burgener, research vice president, Storage. "NVMe-based storage systems are already available from a number of start-ups as well as some established enterprise storage providers, and IDC expects that by 2021, NVMe-based arrays using NVMe over Fabric host connections will be driving more than 50% of all external primary storage revenue."
