Home Servers and Consumer Storage: Analysis and Forecasts

August 7, 2008

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.”
