ioFABRIC Survey of Spiceworks Users Shows That SDS Is On-Track With Extending Life of Storage
TORONTO, ON – June 28, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ – A recent survey revealed the most common storage challenges facing IT professionals today — and it’s no surprise that meeting capacity and performance demands, and containing costs, top the list of complaints.
Nearly 200 people responded to the survey, conducted by ioFABRIC on Spiceworks, the social and professional network for tech workers. IT pros said their biggest frustrations by far are capacity limitations (34 percent) and high costs (29 percent), followed by delivering appropriate performance (15 percent).
Concerns about capacity, performance, and costs are driving users to software-defined storage, because one of its major benefits is extending the capability of existing storage, and adding performance and capacity without excessive costs. Indeed, nearly half (48 percent) said extending the life of their current storage investment would help solve their problems. One-third (33 percent) doubted this would be of use, and the rest (nearly 18 percent) said maybe or somewhat.
“While some of these issues are evergreen — increasing capacity and performance, within budget — the interest in maximizing their current infrastructures shows that most users are not motivated to perform major upgrades now, which is good news for software-defined storage,” said ioFABRIC CEO and Co-founder Steven Lamb. “Fortunately those who are hoping to upgrade will find a software-defined approach enables them to add newer technologies like flash arrays or cloud storage easily and without risk or downtime.”
