It is an interesting time to be in enterprise IT. There's the old world and the new world. There's the SAN storage + proprietary database world and there's the Cloud + open data formats world. In the new world, you own your data and can process it any way you like, simultaneously. Hadoop with Spark, Storm, Flink, Phoenix, Presto, Hive, Impala or straight MapReduce - you choose. Modern software running in the cloud, on commodity hardware, slowly eats the legacy IT world. However, the old world is not going away - any time soon. We've been around for long enough to know that. Enterprise data continues to be born in many different old world systems, where it will graduate to the new world for modern analytics and processing.

Introduction There’s more to data than just to store it. Organizations not only have the responsibility of dealing with a plethora of data, but are also anticipated of safeguarding it. One of the primary alternatives that enterprises are indulging in to keep up with the continuous data expansion is data storage entities and applications. A recent study conducted by Statista revealed that worldwide spending on data storage units is expected to exceed 78 billion U.S. dollars by 2021. Going by these storage stats, it can be certainly said that data is going to be amplified at a much faster rate, and companies do not have a choice but to be geared up for a data boom and still be relevant. When it comes to data management/storage, information technology has risen to all its glory with concepts like machine learning. While the idea of such profound approaches is thrilling, the real question boils down to whether organizations are ready as well as equipped enough to handle them. The answer to this might be NO. But, can companies make changes and still thrive? Most definitely, YES! To make this concept more understandable, here is a list of changes/trends that companies should adopt to make data storage a lot more easy and secure. 2. Top data storage trends that simplify data management Data corruption is one big issue that most companies face. The complications that unfold further because of the corruption of data are even more complicated to resolve. To fix this and other such data storage problems, companies have come up with trends that are resilient and flexible. These trends have the capability of making history in the world of technology, so, you better gear up to learn and later adapt to them. 2.1 AI storage continues to be the chief The speed with which AI hit the IT world just doesn’t seem to slow down even after all these years. We say this because, amongst all other concepts that were and are constantly being introduced, artificial intelligence is one applied science that has made the most amount of innovations. To further add to this, AI is now making enterprise data storage process easier with its various subsets like machine learning and deep learning. This technology is helping companies in accumulating multiple layers of data in a more assorted format. It is automating IT storages including data migrating, archiving, protecting, etc. With AI, companies will be able to control data storage across multiple locations and storage platforms. 2.2 Price markdown in Flash storage As per a report by Markets and Markets, the overall All-Flash Array Market was valued at USD 5.9 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 17.8 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 24.53% during this period. This growth only states that the need for all-flash storage is only going to broaden. Flash storage has always been a choice that most companies stayed away from mainly because of the price. But with this new trend of adopting flexible data storage ways coming in, flash storage has been offered at a much-depreciated price. The drop in the cost of this storage technology will finally enable businesses of all sizes to invest in this high-performance solution.

In this wave of data storage services, hybrid multi-cloud is one concept that is helping manage off-premises data. With this growing concept, IT authorities will be able to collect, segregate and store, on-premises, and off-premises data in a much-sophisticated manner. This will enable in centrally managing while reducing the effort of data storage by automating policy-based data placement across a hybrid of multi-cloud and storage types. 2.4 Increased significance of software-defined storage More the data, less reliability on hardware devices – this is the growing attitude of most companies. This fear certainly has the possibility of becoming a reality. Hence, an addition to the cybersecurity strategy that companies can make is adopting software-defined storage. This approach of data storage disconnects the underlying physical storage hardware. It is programmed in a way that can function on policy-based management of resources, automated provision, and computerized storage capacity reassignment. Due to the automated function, scaling up and down of data is also faster. Some of the biggest advantages of this trend will be the governance, data protection, and security it will provide to the entire loop. 2.5 Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) beats data center fabrics NVMe – as ornate as the name sounds, is a concept that is freshly introduced with the aim of making data storage simpler. Non-Volatile Memory Express is a concept that enables accessibility of high-speed storage media. It is a protocol that is showing great results in a short amount of time of its inception. NVMe not only increases the performance value of existing applications, but also enables new applications to real-time workload processing. This feature of high performance and low latency is surely a highlight of the concept. All in all, this entire trend seems to have a lot of potential that are yet to be explored.

This is because it perfectly fills in the gap between server storage and external storage. As data protection is one of the major concerns of enterprises, this upcoming trend, does not only protect data but also continually stores and improves it for easier segregation. A clear advantage that storage class memory has over flash and NVMe storages is that it provides memory-like byte-addressable access to data thus reducing piling up of irrelevant data. Another benefit of this trend is that it indulges in deeper integration of data for ensuring high performance and top-level data security. 2.7 Hyperconverged storage – a push to edge computing The increased demand for hyper converged storage is a result of the growth of hybrid cloud and software-defined infrastructure. Besides these technologies, its suitability for retail settings and remote offices is add on to its already existing set of features. It’s the capability of capturing data from a distance also enables cost-effectiveness and scales down the need to store everything on a public cloud. Hyper converged storage if used in its true essence can simplify IT operations and data storage for enterprises of all sizes. 3. The future of data storage According to the Internet World Stats, more than 4.5 billion internet users around the world relentlessly create an astronomical amount of data. This translates to propel companies into discovering methods or applications that help them store this data safe from harmful ransomware attacks and still use it productively for their advantage. One of the prime changes that can be estimated about the future of data storage is that companies will have to adapt to the rapid changes, and mould their process to enable quick and seamless storage of data. Another enhancement would be that IT managers and responsible authorities would have to be updated and proactive at all times to know what data storage has been newly introduced, and how it can be used for the company’s advantage. Here’s a thing, amongst all the research that enterprises are conducting, not all data storage technologies will end up becoming a hit, and will fulfil the specification of high-speed storage. But, looking at all the efforts that researchers are taking, we don’t think they are going to stop any sooner and neither is the augmentation of data!
