Scality, leader in software solutions for global data orchestration and distributed file and object storage, predicts that data storage will become massively decentralised in 2020 and hybrid cloud will become the defacto standard for organisations as they seek ways to manage and use data efficiently and intelligently. Scality looks at the storage industry and the likely developments in AI, hybrid cloud, object storage, cyber security and sustainability that will shape it as it moves into a new decade.
“Though the trends we’ve been seeing in 2018 and 2019 will continue, and even accelerate, the data storage industry in 2020 will look very different from what it was the last two years,” said Jérôme Lecat, Scality’s CEO and co-founder. “We will see continuing evolution and advancement of cloud, edge empowerment, data collection for AI and more, as digital transformation remains top of mind. As organisations tackle these changes, storage decentralisation across public and private cloud and edge will necessitate more robust management and data visibility solutions, becoming a significant focus in the year ahead.”
