Since 2009, replication has ruled the list of storage technologies and features considered when making purchasing decisions; in 2012 it increased slightly to 52% of respondents citing it as "very" important. Encryption jumped as a priority, from 33% in 2010 to 42% in 2012. Neither increase is surprising, given the increase in the use of both technologies in organizations.

Snapshots and disk-to-disk-to-tape backup both dropped 5% from 2010 to 2012, while deduplication tumbled 7%. "This is likely an indication that IT now considers these relatively mature and undifferentiated technologies that are--or should be--standard features of any enterprise-class storage system," wrote Marko in "State of Storage 2012."
