Businesses have overwhelming amount of data to keep. However, the new data technology has made it easier for them to manage their large set of data.
In 2019, we will see the rise and prevalence of new storage technologies for data. Here we have picked key of them.
All Flash and NVMe:
The use of all-flash storage is gaining popularity and will see new heights as 2019 will pass. Thanks to the declining prices of flash. Besides, it has proven to improve the performance of analytics and AI. No wonder why many businesses opt for it when it comes to storage needs.
Likewise, NVMe continues to be a popular storage choice for its high performance protocol. More improved protocols mean it can support more workloads and application in your IT infrastructure.
Integrating Modern Data Protection:
Data protection should go beyond backup and restore to secondary datasets like snapshots, replicas and backups. With this new data trend, copies will be liability no more but turn into an advantage. Secondary datasets can be used for DevOps, testing workloads and analytics.
While taking backup and storage is downright essential, there is always a risk of skipping or forgetting this step. This is why automating storage has come into the scenario.
Role of Artificial Intelligence:
AI is becoming a crucial technology for many industries, from vehicle manufacturing, healthcare to food services. After all, it simplifies operations, accelerate processes and production. It has eliminated repetitive labor and mundane processes from the manual complex tasks. AI will play a crucial role in storage practices.
