Japan Software-Defined Storage Demands Analysis 2015

This IDC study analyzes demand trends in the Japan software-defined storage (SDS) market, based on a user survey. IDC estimated demand and considered some points required to develop the market by asking respondents about such factors as their awareness, intended use, conditions for selection, expected benefits, and feelings about cost when it comes to SDS.IDC Japan enterprise infrastructure Research Manager Yasusuke Suzuki argues that "the awareness of software-defined storage among enterprise users is improving, but the understanding of SDS products remains insufficient. Further, no products that seem to have the potential to exert the unifying force that would take to form an effective ecosystem have appeared on the market, and companies are expanding their competitive efforts in order to secure a profitable position. Going forward, however, the importance of software-defined storage as a core technology for use in high-volume storage that will support Big Data and analytics and automated infrastructure operations in order to speed up business is certain to increase, and SDS will become one of the primary product segments in the storage market."IDC Opinion Methodology Definition Executive Summary Essential Guidance Synopsis
