  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.

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.
