2013-state-of-storage_72265Nearly a third of organizations are seeing their data growing by 25 percent or more a year, increasing storage needs, according to a new InformationWeek Reports study.

InformationWeek polled more than 300 business technology professionals, all of them involved with storage at their organizations. Survey results reveal that Ethernet is taking off, with a combined year-over-year boost of 20 points in iSCSI and FCoE. Security saw gains as well: 60% now encrypt at least some stored data. And, good help is hard to find, as 26% cite insufficient staffing as a top concern, up from 19% in 2012.

Here’s an infographic detailing the findings:
