Storage Governance Requirements will Grow

Storage Governance Requirements will Grow

There are many reasons why “how to manage media storage” is a bigger issue than the actual hardware required. Ensuring things don’t go missing, get deleted or get corrupted is just the beginning. Creating efficiency in workflows and maintaining security are even bigger challenges. Let’s focus on security. The recent data hack for “Orange is the New Black” is one example why the whole supply chain from production through to distribution is undergoing a weighty volume of new security requirements. These requirements are onerous, time-consuming and add cost to all concerned. Using the correct technologies that perform encryption and generally protect media stores is essential.

The Prediction

The final trend prediction for 2019 is that it will be a year where the media production industry throughout will make huge steps forward around securing production and storage. In particular, that storage technologies that support this will be sought out as essential.
