DSS situation on Russian market is two-sided. On one side, there is a crisis in IT industry and budgets won’t be increased for infrastructure development. Budgets will be cut, and CIO will try to “take” the maximum from the current assets. On the other hand, cloud services have influence of DSS, because they are developing despite the crisis and don’t require major capital cost.
So, technologically, market should develop as is following the developing clouds, but to purchase new solutions, is not possible due to the current situation. Other side of the medal – some technologies allow to make the store and information processing less pricey. Now, instead of increase of data store place, CIOs try to use new opportunities: virtualization of DSS, de-duplication; multi-level storage, outsourcing, cloud storage.
