Home Servers and Consumer Storage: Analysis and Forecasts
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/097d62/home_servers_and_c) has announced the addition of the "Home Servers and Consumer Storage: Analysis and Forecasts" report to their offering.
This report identifies different consumer storage platforms and profiles the most representative / competitive solution providers. With the latest consumer data on intenders and early adopters, a comprehensive industry analysis, and industry forecasts, this report takes an early look at an emerging but promising home server industry."Current file storage solutions are not equipped to handle consumers' ever-growing libraries of digital photos, music, and video," said Jane Shields, research analyst. "Soon the average broadband household will need close to a terabyte of storage to account for their media collections on PCs, portable devices, and DVRs. However, while storage capacity will certainly be a critical factor in purchase decisions, the industry needs to pay attention to additional features as it approaches the mass market."
