Access "Survey Says: iSCSI will erode Fibre Channel sales"

Published: 19 Oct 2012

What are your plans for iSCSI? Will using IP SANs cause you to buy fewer Fibre Channel SANs? iSCSI's ramp up among the Fortune 1000 has been very gradual, to say the least. According to a recent survey of Fortune 1000 storage administrators, iSCSI is currently used in only 13% of their organizations, while 22% plan to deploy it this calendar year 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 (54%) of iSCSI SAN users predict that the technology will cause them to spend less on Fibre Channel SANs.
