Global Enterprise NAS Market 2016-2020

About the Enterprise Network-Attached Storage (NAS) Market

NAS is a storage system that enables file sharing among enterprise users. It is an independent network node in the local area network (LAN) that consists of individual Internet protocol (IP) addresses. File transfer is achieved through an Ethernet connection between users and NAS systems.

NAS allows multiple users access to the same file in a network. In an enterprise environment, NAS systems are used for backup, archiving, and disaster recovery of data. NAS systems can also function as a multimedia, database, or print server for SMEs.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global enterprise NAS market to grow at a CAGR of 21.67% during the period 2016-2020.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A major trend influencing the market is the growing implementation of software-defined storage (SDS). 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 helps increase the flexibility, scalability, and automation of the enterprise storage infrastructure. Importantly, SDS helps reduce overall storage costs for enterprises. SDS is a fundamental component of SDDCs and is gaining popularity among enterprises worldwide.”

According to the report, a key growth driver is the need for collaborative working environments. The NAS system enables collaboration among enterprise users by providing a central location for storing business data along with remote access to files stored on the device. The system can be seamlessly integrated with the cloud environment for simplified collaboration and centralized management.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could hamper market growth is issues surrounding NAS compatibility.
