This IDC Perspective discusses VAST Data's continued hypergrowth and how growing data demands are driving it. VAST Data has set the enterprise storage industry record for rapid growth not only in the unstructured data storage market where the vendor plays but for all storage markets in the history of the industry. With enterprises deploying more workloads that require multi-petabyte scalability, IT managers should familiarize themselves with the simplicity, linear scalability, and economics of VAST Data's Universal Storage Platform before they refresh an existing scale-out file storage platform or purchase a new one. This document explains the VAST Data value proposition from a business point of view, while a companion piece also available from IDC (see VAST Data: A Technical Deep-Dive Look at a Compelling New Scale-Out Storage Architecture, IDC #US48805222, February 2022) delves into the technical validation behind the vendor's compelling offering."The high data growth rates being experienced by almost all enterprises undergoing digital transformation demand modernized IT infrastructure, and storage infrastructure in particular needs to be upgraded to meet the requirements of the new workloads," said Eric Burgener, research vice president, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms, and Technologies Group at IDC. "VAST Data addresses the needs of unstructured data management in this new era, and its financial performance to date speaks for itself. Not only is it a vendor to watch in enterprise storage, it is the vendor to watch."
