5 Fearless Data Storage Predictions for 2018

It’s hard to believe we’re already solidly into the fourth quarter of 2017. Rather than waiting for the new year and getting lost in the sea of 2018 predictions articles, we thought it would be more fun to make the exercise a little more challenging and make some 2018 predictions before 2017 is even up.

We did this last year, and had some pretty solid conversations about hybrid cloud transformation and more. We predicted the hybrid cloud transition would continue to be difficult and messy. OK, maybe this wasn’t necessarily going out on a limb, but anyone who helped their company through a hybrid cloud project this year would surely agree this came true.

We also predicted that IoT and machine data would raise many new questions for IT departments, especially around security and data access. With data breaches seemingly a daily occurrence, and machine data being created at a staggering pace, there’s no doubt this prediction was also confirmed.

We made some predictions that remain trends worth watching, like “hybrid cloud” coming to automatically mean “multi-cloud,” containers become more mainstream tools for enterprise application development and DevOps and IT teams developing a common language to maximize DevOps’s great potential to accelerate business application development. These are all still developing.

For 2018, we’re focusing more on the business side of things. As markets mature and change, providers will have to evolve with them. This will result in some surprising trends, from cloud providers looking more like on-premise, to market consolidation and its effects. Without further ado, here are our five fearless predictions for 2018.
