AI in Storage: Expected Trends in 2022

It seems Artificial Intelligence is the new favorite of top names in the storage sector. Although AI is not new in the storage space, it is being actively leveraged nowadays.

When Google utilized its AI DeepMind to use a few years ago, there was approximately about 40% reduction in the energy spent on the cooling of data centers.

According to forecasts by IDC, worldwide spending on AI artificial intelligence is expected to increase from about US$85.3 billion in 2021 to about US$204 billion towards 2025.

Machine-learning-powered AI is able to process vast amounts of data points each second that is obtained from sensors placed along with data centres. AI is also synonymous with rapid adjustments than a human hand.

Still, overall, AI is in its primitive stages, and there is more room for development on all fronts. In addition, the storage space is yet to leverage the potential of AI. 2022 will be the year to change this.

However, towards the end of 2022, the implementation of AI across data storage and software-defined storage would gain more value compared to the previous years.

In 2022, AI is likely to be utilized to construct storage systems besides SDS.

This is the trend that is predicted to harness the full capability of AI for the storage estate. As a result, artificial intelligence will drive increased software and hardware needs.

AI enables equipment to think like human beings. Therefore, the timely utilization of AI and adequately dealing with its results can refurbish any broken businesses. Thus, the storage industry will find AI the best option to stay ahead of the competition.

According to credible sources, the storage industry must manage vast amounts of information in the coming years, which is almost more than a double hike. Also, the industry will have to tackle the lack of skilled personnel to deal with the requirement.
