NAS Market to Grow

At ElephantDrive, we are huge fans of Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices.  As a cloud backup, sync, and sharing platform, we are focused on helping users migrate their data into the cloud.  That being said, we’ve always envisioned a hybrid world in which simple, secure online storage complements fast, reliable local storage. NAS devices are ideal components of this type of mixed system, so we’ve become the leader for tightly integrated backup for NAS makers.
We recently came across a great article highlighting expected growth in the NAS industry. Below you’ll find a synopsis of what we think are the most important details. However, if you want to read the full report, please click here.
A study by Research Markets reported that global enterprise NAS storage markets are expected to grow at a CAGR of 25.85% over the period of 2014-2019. According to the report, enterprises worldwide are expanding businesses in order to stay cometitive-thus leading to new trends in this vertical. Significant infrastructure development, growing business data, and users need for collaborative file/folder sharing abilities are driving this significant market growth.
