Compute Will Move To The Storage

Back in the good old days data was stored on premises along with the servers, and life was easy. Today, however, data is stored where it is needed: on premises, in the cloud, or in devices at the network edge. Disparate data locations, combined with the difficulty of finding enough bandwidth to move data to where it is needed in a timely manner, are making it more important to move computing power closer to the data.

Thanks to newer more powerful or more power-efficient CPUs, compute can now be found and easily accessed in the cloud, in devices on the edge, and even on storage arrays themselves. Given that compute resources can be accessed or moved more quickly than data, expect 2018 to be year we see the portable compute resources wherever the data lives.
