"'Slow but steady' might have been coined to describe the Canadian enterprise storage system landscape. Seemingly limitless demand for capacity is tempered by storage efficiency technologies, lower per-terabyte storage costs, and an increase in the movement of low-end capacity to cloud. Storage vendors need to pick their battles, the technologies, and their partners to ensure not just revenue but profits." - Dave Pearson, research manager, Storage and Networking
