Global RAID Controller Card Market 2017-2021

Global RAID Controller Card Market 2017-2021

About RAID Controller Card

Redundant array of inexpensive disks (RAID) controller cards are either a hardware device or a software program, which helps manage hard disk drives (HDDs) or solid-state drives (SSDs) in a computer storage array. They also help in improving the performance and capacity by virtualizing independent multiple HDDs into one or more arrays. A RAID level of a RAID controller card determines the application it is used for. The different levels of RAID include RAID 1, RAID 5, RAID 6, and RAID 10.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global RAID controller card market to grow at a CAGR of 3.24% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global RAID Controller Card Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global RAID controller card market: Broadcom, Dell, FUJITSU, HP Development Company, and Intel.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Areca Technology, IBM, Lenovo, and Microsemi.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is increasing popularity of flash-based storage. Flash-based storage is any type of drive that uses flash memory to store data for an extended period of time. SSDs are popular examples of flash-based storage devices. Flash storage has several benefits such as reduced power consumption and additional compactness of the storage device.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing demand for cloud-based storage. Cloud storage is one of the most important innovations that disrupted the storage market. It is an on-demand service that is provided to users by various firms such as Amazon, Facebook, and Google. Several computer resources are offered to users without the need of having a hardware. Users can save text, files, and images on a cloud-based platform. Users need to pay a nominal subscription fee for these cloud computing services. Cloud computing allows users to access computing resources anytime at any location without the need of any supporting hardware.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is technical challenges regarding data protection. One of the major challenges to the global RAID controller card market is the increasing difficulty in ensuring data protection, which results in data corruption. For example, at level 1, a RAID controller is required to create two equal disks. The creation of 2 disks is necessary so that in the event of the failure of one disk, the data is backed to the other disk. The issue faced here is that a RAID controller card is unable to determine which of the disks has been damaged. As a result, if the failure is not detected, data from the corrupted drive gets copied, which will corrupt the second drive as well.
