Next Data Storage Today: Key Takeaways from VMworld 2016-4 Next

Next-Gen Storage Infrastructures Are Taking Off

Hyperconvergence has been widely adopted for primary storage functions, according to VMworld participants. Less than 37 percent of respondents said they are not deploying hyperconverged storage architecture now or in the near future. The majority of respondents had implemented one of three popular solutions - VMware's VSAN and vBlock took first and third place for users (not surprising given the site of the survey), while Nutanix had the second highest number of users among survey respondents.

Storage continues to be one of the hottest topics at VMware's largest annual conference, VMworld. The conference was full of storage startups and established vendors displaying their solutions for tackling storage's biggest pain points: data silos, management complexity and cost. Businesses are capitalizing on new storage technologies, such as hyperconvergence, to make data storage easier and more efficient.

However, many enterprises have come to rely on multiple storage solutions and vendors for their non-critical secondary storage, resulting in more data siloes and increasing stores of "dark data." This is becoming difficult to manage and needlessly expensive. Based on a survey at VMworld 2016 from hyperconverged secondary storage pioneer Cohesity, this slideshow identifies four key takeaways on the state of data storage today. Findings include pain points for secondary storage, average restore times, the growth of hyperconvergence and rate of cloud adoption in enterprises.
