Fresh Insights into Trends and Technologies for Data Capture, Access, Management and Preservation

As a trusted leader in developing and providing data storage and data management solutions that solve the problem of digital preservation for organizations dealing with exponential data growth, Spectra Logic has a keen pulse on the industry. Over 40 years of close collaboration with customers and partners worldwide has allowed the company to not only maintain a discerning awareness of the global market, but also position itself as an early innovator in robotics, automation, and interfaces.

To that end, Spectra Logic announced last week the publication of its fifth annual Digital Data Storage Outlook. The report covers the strategies and technologies that are anticipated to make impacts on our future as organizations navigate the budgetary and infrastructure challenges of capturing, sharing and preserving data, especially during these unusual times. According to the report, anticipating future technologies, applications, use cases and costs will be key to manufacturers, developers and users looking to meet today’s data storage and data management challenges, as well as vital in driving the technological leaps that will be required by the generations to come.

Spectra Logic’s 2020 Digital Data Storage Outlook report gives readers a comprehensive view into:

  • Storage apportionment and how economic concerns will push infrequently accessed data from tier one storage, made up of flash, to a second tier, made up of spinning disk, object storage, cloud and tape.
  • Technology highlights for 2020, including growth and price expectations for flash, disk, tape and other technologies in the storage market.
  • Trends in cloud, with providers consuming, in terms of both volume and revenue, an increasingly larger portion of the storage required to support the digital universe.
