IDC predicts an increase in NZ Storage Capacity

IDC predicts an increase in NZ Storage Capacity of 32.6% for 2003

Storage has become the critical repository of any organisation’s data and a key building block of their IT infrastructure. Despite the recent business recession, the amount of data that needs to be stored and managed continues to grow, requiring new investments in storage systems.

"Overall, The total new storage capacity that is expected to ship in New Zealand in 2003 is 1,402 TBs, an increase of 32.6% over shipments in 2002. New capacity expected to ship will increase annually by almost 49.3% so that by 2007 the total will be 7,850 TBs. This is an immense amount of storage that will be needed to be effectively managed. The presentations and discussions during the day will highlight how changes in the way the storage resource is being deployed can enable organisations to gain significant value for their business", says Graham Penn Director Storage Research IDC Asia Pacific.

IDC's StorageVision 2003 event, Making Storage a Productive Resource, is being held on the 25th September at the Hilton Auckland, and will provide an update on the latest developments to address this important issue. This half day event brings together senior executives from leading storage vendors to discuss how to make storage a productive resource in your organisation. StorageVision 2003 will also provide an update on the latest developments in this important market and present how to reposition your storage investments to maximise business benefits.

At StorageVision 2003 leading edge presentations will be made by IDC analysts and industry leaders from Hewlett Packard and Cisco Systems to explain to CIOs and IT decision makers the new storage architectures for strategic business advantage and how to organise the storage resource to add value to an organisation.

"Presentations will also help attendees understand likely developments that will emerge relating to the storage market over the next few years. This will include the place of Serial ATA and Serial SCSI disks, the deployment of the iSCSI protocol and the impact of new storage software on the way organisations organise and manage their storage resource. These changes will have a major impact on most organisations in 2004 and 2005", says Graham Penn Director Storage Research IDC Australia.

Hot Issues addressed at this event include; New storage architecture for strategic business advantage Reaching beyond the four walls to customers and suppliers Maximising the return on your storage investment Organising your storage resource to provide value for your organisation Adding new intelligence - automating the processing The business benefits of network storage An overview of storage futures - technologies on the horizon New applications - broadening the focus, re-engineering the infrastructure The keys to the kingdom - building in simplicity, removing complexity.
