Japan Virtual Tape Library Demand Trends Analysis 2009: Can VTL Secure a Solid Position in the Backup Market in Japan?

This IDC study (which is a translation of the Japanese report IDC #J9450103), we clarify the backup market in Japan and consider the reasons (inhibiting factors) for the stagnant demand for open system virtual tape library (VTL). Likewise, the report looks at scenarios for a growth in demand for VTL aimed at open systems in the Japan market and presents items considered essential for VTL to establish a foothold in the Japan backup market.

"In order for VTL demand to grow in Japan, VTL vendors must enhance the value of VTL products in the backup market by reviewing pricing, enhancing sales partner relationship, and improving support services," is the analysis of Ayuchi Takamatsu, Research Analyst, storage systems, IDC Japan.
