InformationWeek State of Storage Survey

I will be writing InformationWeek's annual State of Storage report in the next few weeks and in preparation InformationWeek Analytics is conducting its third annual storage survey on data management technologies and strategies. We are surveying IT pros to understand your storage usage and challenges. We're also interested in what our readers think are the major trends, both from a technology and business perspective, in the storage world this year.

I will be writing InformationWeek's annual State of Storage report in the next few weeks and in preparation InformationWeek Analytics is conducting its third annual storage survey on data management technologies and strategies. We are surveying IT pros to understand your storage usage and challenges. We're also interested in what our readers think are the major trends, both from a technology and business perspective, in the storage world this year.While the survey provides some great quantitative data, I would also welcome a discussion here on the blog. Some of the technology trends I see accelerating in the coming year include:

  • I/O improvements: 10GbE/8-gig FC array support; bigger caches, integrated SSDs, etc.
  • Versatility improvements: multi-protocol support (iSCSI, FC and NAS/network filesystem) on the same box; multiple drive types (e.g. SAS, SATA, even SSD) per array
  • Expandability/Scalability: ability to manage multiple arrays as a system; create multi-array storage pools
  • Efficiency Improvements: automatic data migration between tiers, integrated data reduction technology (compression, dedupe, etc.) and data reduction on primary (Tier 1) storage
  • Virtualization support: thin provisioning; virtual storage allocation/over subscription
  • Hybrid On-premises/cloud storage architectures; automatic migration of archival data to the cloud
  • What do you think? What are your biggest data management challenges? Capacity growth? Throughput/performance? Data management? Take the survey and share your comments.

    The survey will take under 10 minutes to complete, and as a little incentive, at the end you'll be eligible to win a 32GB iPod Touch (a sweet little device, essentially an iPhone without the phone) from TechWeb. Your responses will remain confidential and will only be reported in aggregate.

    To take the survey, simply click here.

    Contest rules are here.
