The evolution of data storage can be traced back to 1725 with the invention of punch-cards, leading to IBM’s floppy disk which was released in the 1970’s. This was soon replaced in the 1980’s from hard disk drives, upgraded to compact discs (CD’s); as we progressed with flash storage into the 20th century and beyond.
Data storage only got bigger and more complexed with the new emergence of technological offerings from vendors. The Data Storage sector was directly impacted by COVID-19 because of its greater economic reliance. There was positive affect from the pandemic that led to a new paradigm, from outlook to implementation. This new era of storage strategy will not only veer away from being immersed in technology but focus on the business needs to ensure its capacity for future scaling. Storage trends should assess new strategies to optimize performance while balancing costs and not hindering growth.
There are a variety of storage types but not all will continue to develop towards the new era. Organizations must also address their top IT concerns when transitioning to new technology storage. What are these concerns? Which data storage types can manage these concerns effectively?
This webinar will focus on the new era to discuss:
1) What is the new era of data storage strategies?
2) What storage types will continue to develop for consolidation and for best optimization?
3) How to address cost control?
4) What are the best Data Management practices going into this new era of data storage?
