Why Read This Report

Infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals are struggling to evolve their infrastructure to meet the daunting scalability, performance, and rapid provisioning challenges created by the latest generation of virtualization, cloud, and unstructured data storage workloads. In 2014, Forrester analysts fielded dozens of enterprise inquiries on storage management, architecture, and technology, with a heavy focus on cutting-edge technologies such as all-flash arrays, cloud gateways, and software-defined storage (SDS). Clients need to determine whether these innovations can aid their business technology (BT) agenda, the to-do list across roles for applying technology, systems, and processes to win, serve, and retain customers. Such new technologies require a future-proof storage infrastructure, a quest that has proven difficult using conventional storage systems. In addition, new technologies must accelerate your progression to hybrid cloud environments. This report distills 84 enterprise client inquiries into five actions that infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders must take to modernize their storage strategy.
