8 Emerging Data Storage Trends To Watch In 2021

A focus on the actual business requirements from storage infrastructures, and not on the legacy discussions about speeds and feeds, the names on the bezels, and where the data is actually located, will characterize the storage industry of 2021 and beyond.

Storage Will Get Smarter

For years, the IT industry has been talking about the fact that IT administrators have had to manage increasingly complex infrastructures with shrinking budgets and staff. The answer for this year, and even more in 2021 and beyond, is to add intelligence to those IT infrastructures.

This is especially true with storage. Storage vendors are increasingly adopting artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning to bring automation to storage management. This might be as simple as monitoring capacity requirements and automatically placing an order for more capacity when needed (OK, it’s not that simple) to using data for predictive analytics to prevent issues before they occur.

HPE has been a pioneer in smart storage with its HPE InfoSight platform, which takes millions of measurements each second from storage across multiple customers to understand what is normal and help businesses react when--or before--things are no longer “normal.”

While other vendors have been moving in this smarter storage direction, expect the movement to gather steam in 2021 as businesses look to reduce the human factor of storage infrastructure management.
