The Middle East enterprise storage market has been the stellar turn in an IT hardware sector that has continued to hurt from sluggish growth during the last three years. A combination of demand for infrastructure to help manage the ever-growing data mount, and the rise of virtualisation technology, which has helped organisations to simplify administration and boost performance, has kept things going smoothly.
“It has become a mandate that all the storage models should be compatible and should be easily integrated with virtualisation and going forward with cloud and big data solutions. This has led to the increased uptake of software defined storage, which offers increased flexibility, automated management and cost efficiency over traditional storage. Converge infrastructure has also become the most compelling building block of data centre infrastructure today.” – Ranjith Kaippada, Sales Director – StorIT Distribution
