Data Storage Trends for 2022

By Adam Hull | Business Manager, Holdan

Leading storage solutions provider PROMISE Technology Inc. has revealed three data storage trends to watch in 2022: green data storage, hybrid Cloud solutions and NVMe-based technologies.

Green Storage Solutions A Priority

With mounting pressure to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030, sustainable data storage solutions will be one of the biggest trends in 2022. The rise of cloud computing and the proliferation of content streaming services has led to a boom in data storage. Left unchecked, it is estimated that data storage alone will be responsible for 14 per cent of global emissions by 2040 — the same proportion as the US accounts for today.

This meteoric rise in demand, coupled with the tightening of green energy regulations in Europe and the US, means the decision to “go green” is no longer an option for businesses — it’s mandatory.

Recognizing this, PROMISE has vowed to become a leader in green data storage across all aspects of business, including product design, development and production. The company has already developed products with a “green DNA”, such as the recently launched high-density JBOD VTrak J5960, which harnesses cutting-edge technologies to reduce power consumption and lower thermal output.

Hybrid Cloud Models on the Rise to Mitigate Security Concerns

By Q3 2021, the number of publicly reported data breaches had already exceeded the number of total breaches in 2020 by 17%. As cyber threats become more pervasive, companies are seeking increased security from their data storage solutions. While organizations traditionally had to choose between a costly private cloud option or a riskier public Cloud option, today’s technologies are enabling a best-of-both-worlds approach with the hybrid Cloud.

In response, PROMISE will enable all product lines with hybrid Cloud functionality in 2022. All PROMISE storage systems will have the capability to connect to a public cloud as well as a local server, maximizing flexibility and mitigating security concerns for enterprises.

NVMe Poised to be a Turning Point

From high-resolution file access to complex workflows demanded by AI, machine learning and edge applications, data storage transfer is always about the need for speed.

Widely adopted technologies like NVMe cache, NVMe over Fabrics and NVMe SSD are poised to experience rapid enterprise growth in 2022, with the global market projected to increase at a 29.7% CAGR between 2020 to 2025. PROMISE has already embraced NVMe technology with plans to roll out products for each format throughout 2022 and 2023.

With more than 30 years of experience in the storage industry, PROMISE is constantly anticipating trends and moves fast to provide state-of-the-art, future-proof solutions to customers in responding to the new tides. We are confident to collaborate with our ecosystem partners to offer integrated solutions to support our global customers and tackle the challenges in data management in today’s world, while growing the business of tomorrow in 2022, said Alice Chang, Chief Sales Officer at PROMISE Technology.
