Just under 20 percent of small businesses and less than one-third of medium businesses use advanced storage technologies. According to IDC, in 2007 data will surpass storage capacity for the first time making expanding storage capacity the yearï¿¼s top priority for 41% of small businesses.
I dunno. Storage is definitely important, but the top priority? That's kind of hard for me to swallow. I mean, shouldn't boosting revenue be the top priority for most companies, large or small? Maybe they meant storage is the top "IT" priority.
Anyway, Dell promises a "town hall" with customers, so maybe I'll learn that storage is even more crucial than I thought. What's your opinion? I'd love to know how important storage is to your company.
