solutions," said Amit Dalal, Asst. Manager, Enterprise
Computing Research, IDC India.
According to NetApp, in the current economic
situation where tight budgets are forcing companies to relook their
IT infrastructure, IP storage (Ethernet Storage) is gaining more
popularity among Indian enterprises.
"The India Enterprise Storage market is
evolving and the momentum is shifting towards Ethernet in a big
way. The underlying reason for this is a ten-fold increase in
Ethernet speeds. We are seeing increased adoption of 10G in data
centers, which will drive economies of scale. This in turn is
catalysing the shift towards deployment of Ethernet Storage.
NetApp's prominent position in the India IP storage market is a
strong foundation for us to provide innovative solutions that help
customers increase efficiency and control costs," said
Rajesh Janey, President - Sales, India & SAARC,
"Significant advances in Ethernet technology
like 10 Gigabit and FCoE driven by key storage networking players
have made this a promising option. It offers the speed and
reliability of Fibre Channel at the cost of Ethernet." said
