Japan Enterprise Storage Systems Market Shares, 2017: Diversifying All-Flash Array
This IDC study is a report presents the Japan external enterprise storage systems market performance in 2017 and analyzes each vendor performance and share. It also analyzes factors that caused changes in vendors' shares. "In 2017, the Japan storage systems market was moving toward increasing deployment of high-end all-flash array (AFA), as well as internal server storage and original design manufacturer (ODM) Direct, for cloud services. Storage vendors should understand that data deployment will become fluid in the future. They should make efforts for data management and flexible storage implementation based on storage spending model (conception model). This will give them options for on-premise systems. Establishing flexibility in infrastructure together with the required performance and capacity is essential for digital transformation (DX) in user companies," states Shinya Kato, market analyst, Enterprise Infrastructure, IDC Japan.
