Server SAN added a $1.25 Billion dollars in 2015, and grew strongly from worldwide revenues of $1.25 Billion in 2014 to $2.5 Billion 2015. The overall growth of was 99%. The top three vendors were Nutanix, VMware and EMC ScaleIO, and they accounted for 43% of the market. ScaleIO had the most explosive growth of 3.5x from 2014 to 2015. Enterprise Server SAN is projected to grow worldwide revenue at 22% CAGR from 2015-2026, from $2.5 Billion in 2015 to $22 Billion in 2026 Wikibon strongly recommends 2016 be the year Server SAN initiatives are installed for evaluation and production.
The hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) wave is at a tipping point of adoption. Users should focus on the operational changes that will accompany the adoption of new Server SAN architectures.
While most agree that data is valuable, accepted conventions for valuing data are few. A simple framework for valuing data in use can help digital businesses make better investment decisions.
Digital business is a strategic requirement, but must be pursued programmatically. One concept -- digital = data -- and three core capabilities must be adopted.
Wikibon looks at how businesses are shifting their application focus towards customer-facing applications, and how this shift will impact data management and storage for CIOs.
As the trend towards greater adoption and usage of open source expands, Wikibon looks at how open source software and public cloud are reshaping the business models of VCs, Startups, Enterprise IT vendors and Cloud Providers.
HPE visited theCUBE for a conversation about IoT edge processing. We excerpt that conversation, adding our insights into evolving IoT architectures.
Next generation datacenters with all-flash for active data will require much higher performance system networks. These networks will need to be integrated into converged systems, and be completely separate from long-distance networks.
The software, hardware, and professional services markets for big data are still in formative stages, with packaged applications emerging only slowly. But the demand for solutions is sufficiently large and growing fast enough to support a number of large vendors with a variety of packaging and go-to-market approaches. Users should identify their big data starting point -- services, application platforms, or converged infrastructure -- and establish the strategic relationships they need to progress with big data investments.
Wikibon looks at several examples of IT organizations that are actively engaged with open source software communities to help evolve how their business undergoes a digital transformation.
