2021 Data Storage Outlook Report Insight: Storage Technologies and Advancements

A 2018 IDC report, commissioned by Seagate Technology, predicts that the Global Datasphere will grow to 175 zettabytes (ZB) of digital data by 2025. While this report took a top-down appraisal of the creation of all digital content, the “stored” digital universe is therefore a smaller subset of the entire digital universe as projected. There is a small likelihood of a constrained supply of storage to meet the needs of the digital universe through 2031 – much of this data will never be stored, will be retained for only a brief time, or will be compressed for longer retention.

Here are some of the expected technical advances in storage technologies Spectra discussed in its sixth annual 2021 Data Storage Outlook report: Read More

2021 Data Storage Outlook Report Insight: A New Model for Data Storage

This year’s annual Data Storage Outlook report from Spectra Logic (our sixth) explores how the world manages, accesses, uses and preserves its ever-growing data repositories.

While predicting the future is riskier than ever due to the pandemic and its impact on the world’s economy, planning ahead will continue to be crucial for organizations looking to pivot fast and innovate anew in the face of technology challenges.

The next storage architecture: the two-tier paradigm

The traditional file-based storage interface is well suited to in-progress work but breaks down at web scale. Object storage, on the other hand, is built for scale. Rather than attempting to force all storage into a single model, increasing scale, level of collaboration and diversity of workflows are driving users toward a new model for data storage – a sensible combination of both.

“I’ve had quite the adventure working at Spectra! I started as a part-time Graphic Design Assistant, then worked my way to mid-level Graphic Designer status. Along the way, I’ve gained life-long friends. I also am fortunate to have an amazing mentor at Spectra who has helped me become the strong, confident designer I am today. Recently, I had the honor of designing the look of our new SpectraLIVE virtual platform, which allows our customers and partners to learn about our solutions and interact with management. I love that every day is different and I can use my creativity to positively impact our brand.” Read More

“I started in 1984 as a technician and, boy, has it been a remarkable journey. I moved to engineering, debugging and designing a number of boards. Later, I helped design our first tape library called Bullfrog – the industry’s first Fibre Channel-attached tape library. I then transitioned to assessing vertical markets to grow our business. Through all the changing roles over the years, Spectra’s people have provided me with a strong sense of family. Heck, I even married one of them. Today I help drive Spectra’s product and business focus and am grateful for the broad experience (and fun) I have had along the way.” Read More
