In this slidecast, David Cerf from the Active Archive Alliance describes five Big Data trends for 2014.
2013 has been a breakthrough year for active archive deployments, and with shrinking IT budgets, exponential data growth, and longer retention periods, there are no signs of slowing in 2014. In fact, the current climate is driving the need for more cost-effective long-term storage solutions more than ever. The market has matured to a point where accessibility and performance are essential to long-term data storage, making 2014 the year active archives will become a more mainstream best practice. Members of the Active Archive Alliance – including Crossroads, Fujifilm, QStar, SGI, and Spectra Logic – have compiled their top five predictions for data storage as it relates to active archives in the year to come.”
