What Are Emerging Data Storage Options?
ITProToday, May 6th, 2022
Data storage has undergone major changes in the last few years and became a key tool in enterprises' digital transformation strategies. Here are five emerging data storage options.

Emerging data storage is a category of high-speed storage that includes hyper-converged infrastructure, NVMe/PCIe storage interface, edge storage, among other innovative technologies.

Data storage technology has traditionally acted as a background player in data centers but is today recognized as a strategic enterprise computing resource. The change in storage's status began in the mid-1990s, when the idea of centralized, networked and shared storage took hold and put storage on a nearly equal footing as application servers. Storage's role in modern data architectures grew as storage area network (SAN) and network-attached storage (NAS) technologies evolved into sophisticated data repositories. The introduction of solid-state media accelerated storage's evolution as flash added read/write speeds that affected the entire computing environment.
