Mike Matchett, Principal Analyst | Small World Big Data
About this talk
By now, we all see the opportunity with core cloud storage services. The object storage that seems to underlie everything we do in IT these days. But cloud storage is becoming more than just objects in space -- it's evolving up the stack to include more layers of critical management, security, functionality, and even utility! And of course, most IT vendors are claiming their solutions, whatever they really are, are now also cloud solutions. Overall cloud adoption is still growing, but the very definition of cloud itself is changing too. What does cloud storage really mean today and where is it going?
In this webinar, Mike Matchett, Principal Analyst with Small World Big Data, will look at some key data and cloud storage trends driving our use of the word “cloud”. We'll unpack some new ways to stay in control of hybrid architectures, securing the no-longer centralized data center, and manage edge data intelligence. Users need to stay ahead of the latest trends driving big changes in data storage. How do we handle support for new big AI models (i.e., when every LOB wants their own ChatGPT...), end user expectations for seamless global access to data anywhere, clean data security in a hostile internet, and what the heck is zero trust, really, just between you and me?
Starting today, where should we put our mighty but limited data storage efforts in 2023? Should we still be managing storage, or should the AI be managing it for us?
