Introduction – why
If you work in the data center, you’ve got a full plate.
Your leadership pushes for a hybrid-cloud strategy. Your colleagues call for
new services and projects. And you have to keep your existing (growing) virtual
footprint up and running. Besides pulling you in multiple directions, the one
thing all these items have in common is the requirement to scale.
In spring, 2016, we conducted the State of Storage for
virtualized enterprises study with data center professionals from around the
world. Well, the results are in and we’ve identified a surprising new (major)
pain point and some tectonic shifts in provider momentum.
