SMBs eye up big boys' storage

Conflicting needs

Small and medium sized firms are ready to stump up big bucks for higher end storage set-ups, if the latest research from IDC is anything to go by.

The latest report on storage from the analyst house predicts that SMBs will take an increasing share of spending on advanced storage systems as their own needs become more sophisticated, and vendors focus on SMBs’ “often conflicting” demand for performance, ease of use and affordability.

Medium sized companies will increase their use of storage area networks in the next year, IDC said. Smaller businesses are getting hot and bothered about expanding their total capacity, while disaster recovery is what keeps medium sized firms up at night, IDC reckons. ®
