Data storage requirements are to increase between 30% and 50% by 2010, according to The Advisory Council (TAC).

A study into data storage needs and future industry developments by the research firm found that while storage demands will increase, new products will have the potential to meet the predicted upsurge.

“Companies will be able use their storage assets more effectively by implementing some of the new storage virtualisation and efficiency tools that are now being developed in response to the need to manage giant data stores,” said Beth Cohen, TAC lead researcher.

TAC said the growth in storage demands would come from a number of different sources, including the widespread use of e-mail, the need for instant file access for business reasons and regulatory requirements.

The report also predicts that while prices for storage solutions should fall, companies will increase spending by using more disk-based data storage rather than reducing expenses.
