Data storage hits of 2019
Data storage hits of 2019

Every year, we take a look back at the most popular content on our site. By a large margin, we see continued demand for educational blogs and webinars on storage. While object-based storage is no longer new, it continues to gain popularity and is no longer a “niche” technology.

We see customers old and new challenged by the demand to store more content, to keep data readily accessible and to deliver digital assets back to workflows or stream them to end users. We expect that trend to continue far past the next decade.

Future-Proofing Your Storage

The term “future-proofing” has been overused, but we all know how important having the right strategy in place for storing business-critical assets is to success. Whether it is to ensure compliance with government or industry regulations, to further monetize assets or for advanced analysis, that trove of data can be a gold mine.
