Server Storage Area Network (SAN) Market by Solution (Software and Hardware), Service (System Integration and Professional), Type (Hyperscale and Enterprise), End User (SMB and Large Business), and Region - Global Forecast to 2020

Server Storage Area Network (SAN) Market by Solution (Software and Hardware), Service (System Integration and Professional), Type (Hyperscale and Enterprise), End User (SMB and Large Business), and Region - Global Forecast to 2020

The global server Storage Area Network (SAN) market is expected to be $3,150.0 million in 2015 and is estimated to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 51.3% during the forecast period of 2015–2020.

Server SAN is a software-led storage architecture that is built on commodity servers with the concept of directly attached storage. Server SAN offers higher performance than the traditional NAS and SAN technologies. The increasing number of data centers and the requirement for improved data storage management are driving the growth of the global server SAN market. The other factors fueling the growth of the server SAN market include reduction of additional data center infrastructure costs, highly scalable storage, and improved data access and storage management. With the advent of cloud computing, service providers, and enterprises, the number of data centers is growing at a fast rate. The increase in the number of data centers is due to the massive proportion of data created daily and demand for storage space for this data locally and internationally. Server SAN has great potential and increased flexibility of storage that is mapped to the applications.

This report gives detailed insights into the global server SAN market split across various regions. The report broadly comprises server SAN by solution: hardware and software; by service: system integration and professional: by type: hyperscale and enterprise; and by end user: Small and Medium Business (SMB) and large business. The report is also segmented into regional markets covering major countries in these regions. The report emphasizes on key adoption trends, evolution of data centers, future opportunities, and business cases in this innovative market. MarketsandMarkets expects an increasing adoption of server SAN solutions, as major vendors are aggressively investing and rigorously working towards building cost-effective solutions in an effort to reduce the overall cost incurred by organizations for storage.

North America (comprising the U.S. and Canada) is expected to command the largest share (38%) of the global server SAN market in 2015, followed by APAC.
