The global server Storage Area Network (SAN) market is expected to be $3,150.0 million in 2015 and is estimated to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 51.3% during the forecast period of 2015–2020.

Server SAN is a software-led storage architecture that is built on commodity servers with the concept of directly attached storage. Server SAN offers higher performance than the traditional NAS and SAN technologies. The increasing number of data centers and the requirement for improved data storage management are driving the growth of the global server SAN market. The other factors fueling the growth of the server SAN market include reduction of additional data center infrastructure costs, highly scalable storage, and improved data access and storage management. With the advent of cloud computing, service providers, and enterprises, the number of data centers is growing at a fast rate. The increase in the number of data centers is due to the massive proportion of data created daily and demand for storage space for this data locally and internationally. Server SAN has great potential and increased flexibility of storage that is mapped to the applications.

This report gives detailed insights into the global server SAN market split across various regions. The report broadly comprises server SAN by solution: hardware and software; by service: system integration and professional: by type: hyperscale and enterprise; and by end user: Small and Medium Business (SMB) and large business. The report is also segmented into regional markets covering major countries in these regions. The report emphasizes on key adoption trends, evolution of data centers, future opportunities, and business cases in this innovative market. MarketsandMarkets expects an increasing adoption of server SAN solutions, as major vendors are aggressively investing and rigorously working towards building cost-effective solutions in an effort to reduce the overall cost incurred by organizations for storage.

North America (comprising the U.S. and Canada) is expected to command the largest share (38%) of the global server SAN market in 2015, followed by APAC. The trend of adoption of server SAN in this region is mainly driven by the reduction of operating expenses and the simplification of IT management. The large business organizations are increasingly implementing software-defined solutions or planning to adopt it in the coming 5 years. APAC is also one of the major growing regions in the server SAN market due to the rising storage demand in this region.

The global server SAN vendors include big market players such as HP, EMC, Citrix Systems, DataCore, Nutanix, Simplivity, Scale Computing, Hitachi, and StorMagic.
