"In 2013, the Russian storage market saw a shift in customer demand toward midrange storage solutions, shipments of which grew healthily. In contrast, sales of low-end and high-end products showed a marked decrease, much more pronounced in the latter. IDC believes that this trend will continue in the future and we will see the midrange segment offering principal growth." - Mikhail Popov, Senior Research Analyst of IDC Russia
