Has storage virtualization reached its saturation point? Thirty-eight percent of companies report that they're using it, a 4% increase from 2010. However, fewer are planning new projects (8% in 2012, vs. 12% in 2010); 30% say they're looking into it, just 1% more than 2010. EMC, IBM, HP and NetApp remained the leading vendors in the field.
