Capacity Needed Drives Storage Technology Choice
Size Matters: The amount of storage capacity required is a determining factor for the type of storage selected.
Storage capacity has major effect on appropriateness of storage tiers.
| 1. || iSCSI-only Cluster: Info-Tech's research shows a weak presence among large and medium capacity organizations. |
| 2. || NAS: Enterprise NAS is moderately popular among small and mid-sized storage, but weak among large. |
| 3. || Tier Two: Has a higher presence among small and medium storage capacity sizes, but still has a decent showing among larger operations. It could be a valid solution for all sizes. |
| 4. || |
Tier One: As the raw capacity of storage of an organization increases, so does their use of consolidated networked storage from a tier one vendor.
