"The global crisis brought tight budgets and further pressure on total cost of ownership, and the recession's impact on end-user behavior will continue in the long term. Tight budgets, combined with uncertainty about future developments, open up opportunities for innovation: While virtualization, consolidation, de-duplication, tiering, and thin provisioning have shown progress and have been adopted to a certain extent, room exists to innovate delivery models – pay-as-you-go, chargeback, and mobile containers for example. Great opportunities also exist from the ever-increasing volumes of unstructured data stored in media content depots." – Research Analyst Petr Švagrovský, Systems and Infrastructure Solutions, IDC CEMA.
