July 2005
Storage Magazine;Jul2005, Vol. 4 Issue 5, p8
This article presents results of a survey of Fortune 1000 storage administrators conducted by TheInfoPro Storage Study Wave 5. The demand for iSCSI among the Fortune 1000 has been very gradual, to say the least. According to the survey, iSCSI is used in only 13% of their organizations, while 22% plan to deploy it in 2005 and 30% are forecasting its deployment in 2006. At the same time, 36% have no plans for iSCSI whatsoever. But what iSCSI lacks in momentum, it makes up for in impact. Long term, a majority of iSCSI storage area network (SAN) predict that the technology will cause them to spend less on Fibre Channel SAN.
