Reflecting on 10 Years of Active Archive

In this special guest feature, Molly Presley from the Active Archive Alliance reflects on how the unstructured data storage industry has evolved and the implications for active archives. “We now have software that allows us to extract data from the archive for things like analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, so it adds more value and usability to archived data. And, many of the applications and processes can now be automated through APIs and CLIs to make it easy to automate common tasks and integrate with upstream applications.”

Top Data Storage Predictions for 2020

Today Qumulo announced its 2020 data storage predictions. Qumulo’s predictions are guided by the enterprise’s realization that legacy scale-out and scale-up NAS storage solutions were not designed to handle today’s unstructured data volumes, distributed geographies and diverse file types. In 2020, enterprise organizations will focus on their data-driven businesses, rather than on managing their storage.
