architectingIT, July 15th, 2020

New storage devices have blurred this boundary, offering benefits for applications and storage array vendors alike.

External Storage

Peripheral devices such as hard drives and SSDs initially connected to a server or computer through a storage controller. The controller itself connects directly to the CPU, today generally using the PCIe bus..."

      Jeffrey Burt writes in TheNextPlatform, "Automation, analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, and the ability to easily move applications and data between on-premises and cloud environments are the focus of much of what OEMs and other tech players are doing. And all of this is being accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, which is speeding up enterprise movement to the cloud and forcing them to adapt to a suddenly widely distributed workforce, trends that won't be changing any time soon as the coronavirus outbreak tightens its grip, particularly in the United States.

      OEMs over the past several months have been particularly aggressive in expanding their offerings in the storage sector, which is playing a central role in help enterprises bridge the space between the datacenter, the cloud and the network edge and to deal with the vast amounts of structured and - in particular - unstructured data being created.
