Prediction #8: 2014 will be the transitional year when more corporate access is gained via mobile devices versus laptops or PCs.

It could be argued that 2013 was the year of hype – whether it be around software-defined networking (SDN), flash storage, the Internet of Things (IoT) or any number of other networking and storage trends. Organizations from diverse sectors have realized the benefits they can reap with high-capacity, high-speed networking that coincides with virtualized workloads and the abilities to transfer large volumes of data, but will we see these revelations translate to actions and further investment? Shaun Walsh, senior vice president of marketing and corporate development, Emulex, believes the answer is yes.

2014 will serve as a critical transitional year for end users, vendors and the industry as a whole, where the hottest trends we saw in 2013 will be further expanded upon. We are at the beginning of a seismic shift in storage and networking capabilities, but 2014 is where we should see these visions become reality. Here are Emulex’s top 10 predictions to keep an eye on.
