3/6

Storage administrators report average storage budget in fall 2012

In terms of raw dollars, storage administrators reported an average storage budget of $3.1 million in this survey (compared with $2.7 million in spring 2012), the highest level we've seen in our storage Purchasing Intentions survey since 2010. Breaking down the increase, we see that the percentage of respondents with big storage budgets has gone up: Twelve percent had storage budgets of more than $5 million, compared with 11% of respondents in spring 2011 and 9% of respondents in spring 2009. Small companies claimed an average $1.1 million in storage budget, an increase from the fall 2011 survey, in which small-company respondents reported an average of $900,000 in storage budget. Midsize companies had a much larger average storage budget increase from fall 2011 to fall 2012: $2.6 million and $3.6 million, respectively.
