In spring 2014, TwinStrata surveyed 254 IT professionals to better understand today’s storage strategies and challenges. We all know that data continues to explode exponentially – our results show 29 percent of organizations with more than 100 employees are storing more than a petabyte – but we wanted to find out just how organizations are dealing with all this data.
Through a brief questionnaire, we gained insight into organizations’ common practices and methods as they relate to storage strategies, technology purchases, and data management. The variety of approaches to handling all this data does still hold some surprises (one in five store inactive data exclusively in storage area networks or network-attached storage).
Take a look at our findings to see how your own storage environment matches up.
