This IDC study provides a forecast for the worldwide software-defined storage controller software market."We expect the market will break the $1 billion mark in 2016 and grow at a 40.1% CAGR in 2015–2020," said Andrew Smith, senior research analyst, IDC's Storage Software group. "The sustained double-digit growth of the SDS-CS market makes this segment the fastest growing of IDC's seven storage software functional markets. We expect the SDS-CS market to maintain an annual growth trajectory despite the sluggish performance of the overall storage software market, which will be negatively impacted by the poor performance of storage replication and storage infrastructure solutions."
