Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report Global Storage Virtualization Market 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Storage Virtualization Market: HP, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle and VMware

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: DataCore Software, EMC, Hitachi Data Systems, and NetApp.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavios team said: Many vendors are offering SDS to simplify management of the virtualized environment. It is a form of storage virtualization that separates software services such as data protection, data management, placement of data, and input/output (I/O) capabilities from the underlying physical storage infrastructure. An increase in big data and the Internet of Things (IoT) will prompt enterprises to implement SDS and traditional virtualization techniques in the upcoming years.

According to the report, many data center operators are implementing virtual technology to reduce the cost and the power consumption required to operate data centers. It also offers flexibility, simplified management, elimination of vendor lock-in issues, and ease of data migration. Server virtualization is the most common type of virtualization implemented by enterprises worldwide. Storage virtualization and network virtualization have also gained momentum.

Further, the report states that a virtualized environment is challenging the security of many enterprises. Data center environments are growing in terms of complexity. The deployment of many virtual machines (VMs) can result in a VM sprawl. VM sprawl is a phenomenon where the virtual machines cannot be controlled by the administrator.
