Businesses Buy Storage

There is opportunity in Data Storage. Get a partner like DPS or RBS or someone else - and upsell your customers.

"According to a study conducted by Access Markets International (AMI) US medium sized businesses (companies with between 100-999 employees) will be investing up to $7.8 billion on data storage and security in 2008 — an increase of 12 percent over 2007."

"Data backup is critical to any business and most (near 90%) of medium sized businesses utilize data backup and data recovery software. Stats from AMI and other analyst groups placed storage and security investment to be around 7 to 10 percent of the total IT spending in most medium sized companies."

"AMI’s study also shows that on, average the U.S. MBs spend about $4,900 on SAN (server attached storage) solutions and 20 percent purchased this technology in the last 12 months. MBs tend go to their trusted channel partners/VARs/IT consultants for storage related solutions. About 85 percent of MBs said enhancing IT security and privacy is the top IT strategy for the next 12 months."
