Organizations are adopting more virtualized workloads and flash storage in hybrid data center environments, according to the 2017 State of Storage in Virtualization report released by ActualTech Media LLC and Tegile Systems, Inc.
This and other findings from the survey suggest the increase in popularity of both virtualization and hybrid storage are inspired by a need for greater automation, reliability and faster access when it comes to business data and applications.
“Modern enterprises need data center infrastructure that can evolve at the pace of their business,” said Scott D. Lowe, partner and cofounder, ActualTech Media. “For the second year in a row, this study has highlighted the immense role that both virtualization and hybrid storage play in moving enterprises’ IT strategies into the future.”
