Storage Expo is the UKs only dedicated data storage event providing visitors with the opportunity to compare the most comprehensive range of data storage solutions from all the leading suppliers. The show is now in its sixth successful year and in addition to more than 100 exhibitors and featuring an unrivalled education programme addressing todays key storage issues. According to IDC last year investment in the storage market increased by over 10 per cent and capacity in terabytes grew by more than 50 per cent. By 2010 annual increase in worldwide storage investment is expected to reach $29.8 billion.
IDC also predicts that the small to medium sized businesses will be more active in investing in storage technology over the next 12 months. A key survey found that although SMBs will continue to rely on internal disks to meet their storage needs for the short term, medium sized firms will increase their storage area network capacity overall in the coming year. As well as expanding storage capacity, another priority highlighted for small businesses is enhancing disaster recovery. The survey also found that small businesses devote the largest share of their disk storage to email and digital content whilst the priority for medium sized businesses is back up and recovery as well as data intensive applications.
This event is the ideal opportunity for those individuals responsible for providing storage solutions for the growing needs of their organisation to assess how they can incorporate essential Storage technology into their current business architecture. Key issues such as coping with data growth, business continuity, disaster recovery and back up, as well as hot topics such as data security and regulatory compliance are addressed at the event not just by the exhibitors but also by the keynote and seminar sessions. Visitors to Storage Expo will find the answer to all their data storage issues from the most comprehensive range of solutions available, said Claire Sellick, event director for Storage Expo.
