Feeling the weight of data gravity

If you build it, the applications and services will come

Sponsored Post Data gravity is commonly defined as the concept that, like a planet, data has mass. And the larger that mass becomes, the greater its gravitational pull so that applications and services become attracted to it.

That's the dilemma which now impacts organizations around the world as they struggle to cope with the vast volumes of structured and unstructured data which now pervades their datacenters – a critical mass that research firm IDC predicts will have swelled to around 175 zettabytes by 2025.

The key question is what new storage technologies and services are coming into play to help address that problem. This is the topic up for discussion in our State of Storage (theregister.com) event, which sees Timothy Prickett-Morgan canvas the opinion of veritable storage experts.

Participants include Scott Sinclair, Practice Director at market research firm Enterprise Strategy Group; Camberley Bates, Managing Director of IT analyst company Evaluator Group; Greg Schulz, Analyst at data infrastructure analyst consultancy StorageIO; and Molly Presley, Senior Vice President of Marketing at data orchestration software supplier, Hammerspace.

Timothy, Scott, Camberley, Greg and Molly will pinpoint the next big trends in the storage space, including new data formats, media and interconnects. Compute Express Link (CXL) memory expansion obviously has a significant role to play, but may take a while longer to bear fruit.

In the meantime, how do suppliers come together to build the high-performance and scalable storage platforms that so many organizations now clamor for, and what's the ideal balance of cloud and on-prem storage, even if such a thing exists?

This is one you cannot afford to miss so what are you waiting for? Watch our State of Storage (theregister.com)here.
