    Hybrid Cloud Data Manager

    The Emergence of the Hybrid Cloud Data Manager

    The role of storage admins will continue to evolve in response to transforming IT landscapes. As organizations move to a cloud delivery model to reduce costs and increase flexibility, they shift from being builders and operators of their own data centers to being brokers of services that span both private and public cloud resources.

    In 2016, the classic storage administrator will either evolve into a data manager of the hybrid cloud with a seat at the executive table or hole up in a comfortable storage product minutia and become increasingly less relevant.

    The role of storage admins will continue to evolve in response to transforming IT landscapes. As organizations move to a cloud delivery model to reduce costs and increase flexibility, they shift from being builders and operators of their own data centers to being brokers of services that span both private and public cloud resources.

    In 2016, the classic storage administrator will either evolve into a data manager of the hybrid cloud with a seat at the executive table or hole up in a comfortable storage product minutia and become increasingly less relevant.

The storage landscape will continue to shift in 2016 as it enters its most exciting transformation yet. The rise of converged infrastructure, flash and hybrid cloud is disrupting what has mostly been a static industry, long thought to be past its inflection point for innovation.  

However, the data revolution and increasing reliance on cloud technologies are changing the way enterprises view and utilize storage. For instance, compute, network and storage are moving beyond traditional IT silos to a converged infrastructure, with DevOps emerging as a key catalyst. Meanwhile, enterprises are finding new use cases for flash, as price cuts have made the technology a viable option for workloads beyond cache and tier technologies.

In tandem, these disruptive forces will significantly impact the responsibilities of storage admins, who must adopt new and relevant skills or risk losing their roles.

In this slideshow, Lee Caswell, VP Product, Solutions & Services Marketing at NetApp, details the exciting changes to come for a dynamic storage market and how it will shape up in 2016.
