IDC's Worldwide Enterprise Storage Systems Tracker Taxonomy, 2023
This IDC study, which presents IDC's current taxonomy for the enterprise storage systems market, should serve as a guide for the existing base of enterprise storage research and for the planned base of IDC hardware research. IDC expects that the definitions presented in this document will provide explanations for the categories of products that are shown within the data tables of IDC's quantitative deliverables and research documents. Tracker deliverables are usually presented in a pivot table format, and the categories are labeled as described in this taxonomy document.
"The enterprise storage systems market will be going through broad changes over the next several years. This taxonomy presents IDC's framework for analyzing the storage market based on standardized and identifiable technical and market attributes," said Natalya Yezhkova, research vice president, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group. "The taxonomy document will continually evolve to facilitate systematic and consistent analysis of the enterprise storage market by IDC's research teams around the world."
