Data storage technologies (DSTs) are evolving with the exponential rise in the demand for high capacity and secured storage systems in the recent years. This is mainly due to the change in technological perception in the global community which focuses on facilitating simplified interaction with the latest innovations happening around as data forms an integral part of this transformation.
From offering high-capacity storage capabilities along with providing secure and advanced data management systems, DSTs will be a driving force for majority of the technological advancements and trends in various industries. Advanced technologies and platforms such as wearable electronics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, IoT, smart factories will be relying completely on the data storage media to generate meaningful output to support decision making.
This technology and innovation report offers insights on three prominent technologies which are shaping up the current data storage market along with few application specific case studies which will have impact in the near future. The technologies include innovations and its impact in non-volatile random access memories (NVRAMs), flash memory and cloud storage. NVRAM technology scope comprises assessment of MRAM (Magnetoresistive random-access memory), FRAM (Ferroelectric Random Access Memory), PCM (Phase-change memory), RRAM/ ReRAM (Resistive random-access memory), DRAM (Dynamic random-access memory), and NRAM (Nano random-access memory). Flash memory technology coverage includes 3D NAND and 3DXPoint along with SSDs (solid state drives), NVDIMMs (Non-Volatile Dual In-line Memory Module) and Enterprise flash. Cloud storage involves comparison between various cloud storage architecture like file storage and object storage, public, private and hybrid storage.
