2018 Object Matrix Storage Prediction

Storage Trends 2018-2020

We predicted Object Storage 15 years ago, but do we have 2020 Vision? Five predictions (and more dodgy puns!) for Storage in the coming few years…

1: “Million dollar marketing budgets and Linux servers son”

Cloud will settle down into good and bad use-cases; but there will be use cases that are only just emerging now.

2: Where Video Analytics is Concerned, AI is the New Old Kid in Town

AI is the hot buzzword at the moment but where is it going?

3: Goodbye PMR. Hello HAMR. DNA – you are a fun side project for now.

HDDs are here to stay. And this is why.

4: LTO7 is Dead. Arise Sir LTO8!

We may loathe it or just have live it with, but LTO continues to claim a stake of the world wide storage pool.

5: Storage is Dead. Long live Digital Content Governance!

Will we even be talking about Storage in 2020?
