Five Innovations in the Data Storage Landscape

  • Five Innovations in the Data Storage Landscape-

    Decoupling Capacity and Performance

    There is an emerging model of purchasing and deploying storage performance separately from capacity in order to reconcile the competing demands between the layers. This decoupling is not just a futuristic architecture; enterprises are adopting it today because it is less intrusive and more flexible than alternatives, and it can be implemented in a way that requires no new hardware or operational changes. All of this enables organizations to keep the otherwise skyrocketing costs of capacity and performance under control.

The global storage software market is rapidly expanding. According to industry analyst Markets and Markets, the global storage software market is expected to grow from $15.11 billion in 2014 to $23.33 billion by 2019. The firm identifies North America and Europe as having the highest adoption rates, with storage solutions increasingly playing a vital role across various industry verticals.

With market pressures on storage providers escalating, the entire ecosystem has been in need of a shake up. True improvement began in 2014, a year that proved to be significant for products, technologies and architectures. The coming months will see even further acceleration in modernization.  

In this slideshow, Scott Davis, chief technology officer of Infinio, a market leader in storage acceleration for virtualized data centers, presents the innovations of the new storage landscape and what these realities mean for industry promise.
