Storage is a huge part of the annual IT budget. For many customers it is the largest component of their IT budget. They are willing to over-spend on storage every year because they are conservative about changing the ways they do things. But, they know they have to do some things differently because their old methods don't scale (data growth year to year is the root cause and is unstoppable) There can be extremely negative exposures from downtime if storage goes haywire and customer data is lost.
