The Adoption of and Leading Use Cases for Solid State Storage by Enterprise Customers

The IDC study discusses the adoption and use of solid state storage solutions among enterprise customers today and in the foreseeable future. In addition to assessing the current state of solid state adoption among enterprise customers, the study also provides valuable insights into future requirements and trends that could drive the market for solid state storage.

"The enterprise adoption of solid state storage solutions has grown considerably over the past year, but still database applications are the most commonly run workloads to leverage solid state storage," said Venkata Nuthakki, senior research analyst, Storage Software at IDC. "As these products mature and gain additional functionality and features, they will create an additional push that will lead to the adoption of flash across all datacenter applications."
