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.
