All Tech Field Day Podcast

Big Storage Is Everywhere!

Ever since IBM introduced external storage in the mainframe age the concept of big storage keeps changing. This special episode of the On-Premise IT podcast includes Storage Field Day 25 delegates Ray Lucchesi, Andy Banta, and Rohan Puri considering the current state of enterprise storage, from the datacenter to the cloud. Although every device and computer has storage of one sort or another, the market still has a tremendous appetite for dedicated storage hardware, software, and services. Storage for different use cases can be wildly different as well, from IoT and edge to machine learning and analytics to databases to the cloud, and each of these have different solutions. But it’s all big storage, and big storage will continue to grow and diversify.
