Email stirage is (becoming) a story of very big numbers. An organisation of 1000 users will generate an average of 400GB per month.
The latest study by The Radicati Group, Inc., "Email Storage Market, 2009-2013," includes an in-depth analysis of market trends, drivers and barriers, installed base and revenue market share by vendor, and four-year forecasts for the on-premises email storage market.
Enterprise email volumes continue to grow driving the need for increased storage capacity. Based on the study, an average company of 1,000 users will use approximately 20 Gigabytes per day of storage in 2009, which translates into 100 GB per week, or 400 GB per month.
All organizations, today, recognize that the need to offload email from their email servers and on to storage devices is essential to ensure efficient, long term storage capacity.
This study looks at the adoption of email storage devices from Dell, EMC, Fujitsu, Hewlett-Packard, Hitachi Data Systems, IBM, NetApp, and Sun Microsystems across Small, Medium and Large Enterprise. It estimates that revenues for storage devices across all three market segments will reach $16.3 billion in 2009, and grow to over $22 billion by 2013.
