REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – January 14, 2015 –Dell’Oro Group today launched coverage on the Storage Systems Market. The Storage Systems Quarterly Market Share Report is the first report to examine systems architecture metrics, including network integration, retrieval method and communication protocol, as well as ports and capacity.

Flash, Software Defined Storage (SDS), the emergence of hyperscaler-oriented architectures, data center convergence, and a dramatic expansion in the number and type of network interfaces are all trends that are impacting the industry,” explained Chris DePuy, Vice President at Dell’Oro Group and author of the report. “In addition, we are paying close attention to the ratio of White Box shipments and the effect of much lower pricing on the overall market and vendor competition,” he remarked.
