Top 10 Storage Companies - 2018
Enterprises are looking at ways of managing the huge influx of data that is demanding a revamp of storage infrastructure. Enterprises are laying greater emphasis on external storage devices to optimize the primary storage capacity and are investing in cloud-based and software-defined storage (SDS) to reduce the risk of data loss and downtime if any one of the services fails. When it comes to SDS, Internet of things (IoT) plays an important role owing to the rapid increase in the number of connected devices. IoT analytics improves the data handling efficiency and provides comprehensive insight into customer-management relations.
The ever-increasing volume of data has also necessitated enterprises to invest in flash storages as they can expand data storage utilization and optimize data management. Flash storages enable new technologies like integrated data protection, storage automation, policy-based provisioning, and public cloud integration to be built upon it. Similarly, businesses are leaning towards hyper-converged infrastructures (HCI) for improved flexibility and convenience for data storage. Additionally, enterprises are engaging with Automated Storage Tiering (AST) to dynamically transfer information between different disk types and RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) levels to improve their performance, data availability, and management.
