China Quarterly City-Level Enterprise Storage Systems Tracker

Available Product Resources Factsheet

Many metropolitan cities are taking measures to secure the local city GDP growth, which will result in more investment both directly and indirectly from the local government, hence creating opportunities for IT spending. Storage, one of the most important components, is playing a critical role in the data explosion era. Not only is the first tier of cities continuously expanding capacity but also the other layers of cities are adopting more storage devices. Vendors are keen to know more about the opportunity by city to support their geographic expansion planning, leading to the appearance of IDC's China Quarterly City-Level Enterprise Storage Systems Tracker®, which is designed to clarify each city's external disk spending status and competitive landscape so that the storage vendors can compete and succeed in this marketplace.
