This IDC study provides an overview of the market size and forecast for global spend on external enterprise storage systems to power various enterprise workloads. Infrastructure vendors that build storage platforms, cloud service providers that offer infrastructure services, and enterprises that plan their IT infrastructure spend can leverage this document toward their planning. "With the onset of COVID-19 and the sudden shift to 'everything' remote, businesses and schools accelerated their digital transformations as triage to meet the demands of rapidly developing and changing workload applications requirements. As a result, end-user spend for workloads essential for remote work and education, digital content delivery, and security increased during 2021," says Heather West, senior research associate, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms, and Technology at IDC. "As the world begins to reopen and end-user organizations realize the importance of maintaining and upgrading current infrastructure, we expect organizations to increase their post-pandemic IT spend on storage infrastructure, which will promote a competitive advantage and improve future resiliency."
