Survey Shows NAS Optimization as Top Choice for Overcoming Storage Performance Challenges in Virtualized Environments

$1.5 billion

The survey asked what solutions they were considering implementing into their company’s virtualization strategy to help overcome the needs of high-performance applications on their storage networks.  NAS Optimization was at the top of the list of respondents’ choices for meeting the storage challenges posed by virtualization (26 percent) with NAS controller upgrades also at 26 percent. The least popular options considered were read-only caching (5%) and short-stroking hard drives (3%).

More than half of respondents will achieve 50 percent server virtualization by 2014, with 35% of organizations expecting to have more than two-thirds of servers virtualized in the same time period. In regards to desktop virtualization or VDI plans, less than one-fifth of the organizations surveyed expect to have 50 percent or more of their desktops virtualized by 2014, reflecting a lower VDI penetration rate in comparison to server virtualization.

Among the survey’s other findings:

  • 91 percent of responders use networks that are a mix of NAS and SAN
  • 49 percent report that more than half of their NAS capacity is NFS
