Bangalore, Sep 11 (UNI) NetApp, the storage and data management solutions major, today announced the interim findings of its ongoing survey titled 'Data Explosion in India - Trends and Challenges' in partnership with Nielsen.

SMEs in India were heading towards a data deluge between now and 2009-10. There was a clear indication of rapid increase in storage requirements in the SME segment.

''There will be a 56 per cent growth in SMEs whose data storage requirement will jump to the 500-999 GB range from 100-499 GB range.

''Further, there will be a 133 per cent growth in SMEs whose data storage requirements will increase in the 6-10 TB range,'' NetApp India Director of Channel, Alliance and Market, Mr Surjit Sen said here.

Speaking to reporters, he said the increase in storage requirements was also reflected by a corresponding drop of 29 per cent of SMEs between 100-499 GB range and a 60 per cent drop in the more than 100 GB range.

Meanwhile NetApp also announced the complete integration of the S family of storage solutions, formerly known as StoreVault, into its full line of storage and data management solutions for the midsized segment at an entry-level price.

''The report findings clearly indicate that SME market in India is growing rapidly, which is reflecting in their data storage requirements. The integration of the S family into NetApp's full line of storage and data management solutions has happened at the most appropriate time for us,'' he said.

Mr Sen said the S Family would offer SMEs in India a new world of solutions especially designed for their evolving needs.
