What trends do you see between the various on-site storage strategies and IP storage or more specifically, IP storage as a monthly service?
I don't think there can be such a thing as monthly storage service. Maybe you are thinking of something else perhaps, such as monthly vaulting of records. Yes IP will work well for that in any number of ways including iSCSI (native IP storage) and FCIP (FC tunneled over IP).
