Storage professionals aren't exactly keyed up about data classification, according to Wave 6 of TheInfoPro's Storage Study. While 22% of respondents claim to have some kind of data classification in place (most of it homegrown and nowhere near automated), not one respondent is currently evaluating a data-classification product. If storage professionals are considering it at all, it's further down the road. As one respondent says: "[There's] lots of talk [about it] at the storage conferences. It's intriguing and a great idea, but realistically I don't see it happening before 2008."
