Global Data Center SAN Market 2016-2020

Global Data Center SAN Market 2016-2020

About Data Center SAN

SAN is a high-speed network of storage devices connected to the server. It provides block level data storage for applications running on networked servers. At the block level, it allows multiple server computers connect to one storage device.

Simultaneous access to a particular storage within the storage device is not permitted in SAN systems. However, they allow a server to take over and control a storage volume. The backup server should take control of the primary server by connecting to the storage volume in the event of a system failure in a clustered environment. From the application point of view, SAN is similar to DAS, in terms of compatibility, during block level storage operations. SAN is preferred by enterprises as it offers better flexibility, availability, and performance compared to DAS storage systems.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global data center SAN market to grow at a CAGR of 21.83% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Data Center SAN Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Data Center SAN Market: Brocade, Cisco, Dell, EMC, HP, Huawei, Lenovo and NetApp

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Dot Hill, NEC, nfina, Nimble Storage, Oracle, Overland Storage (Sphere 3D), Pure Storage, and XIO Technologies.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “SDS is a key component of SDDCs. SDS involves a form of storage virtualization that separates software services, such as data management, data protection, placement of data, and I/O capabilities, from the underlying storage infrastructure. This increases flexibility, scalability, and automation capabilities of enterprise SAN storage infrastructure.”

According to the report, major benefit of using SAN is better utilization of the storage infrastructure. In a SAN environment, separate storage arrays are combined as a centralized storage network. In a centralized storage network, storage resources are allocated to servers through a central pool.

Further, the report states that data security will be difficult to implement given the expected increase in data volumes during the forecast period.
