This IDC study provides historical data (2010–2014) and a forecast (2015–2019) for the worldwide storage for virtual x86 environments market (i.e., storage solutions attached to virtual server environments).

For each of these categories, IDC estimates value (end-user spending) and capacity (in terabytes)."Budget pressures are forcing enterprises to become increasingly efficient at managing continued explosive data growth, and the capabilities that virtual infrastructure offers to do that, combined with its agility at meeting dynamically changing business conditions, make virtual computing the dominant deployment platform of choice," said Eric Burgener, research director, Storage Systems. "This continues to drive the growth of storage for virtual environments at a higher rate than enterprise storage overall throughout the forecast period.
