Asked what storage technologies they expected to deploy in 2020, the largest number of UK respondents (44%) said cloud storage.
That’s not to say “traditional” on-premise storage technologies are down and out, however. Nearly one-third (29%) said they would deploy file access network-attached storage (NAS) this year, while not far off a quarter (23%) said they would deploy block access storage area network (SAN) hardware in 2020.
Meanwhile, 17% said they would deploy flash solid-state media and 9% said they would deploy superfast NVMe flash storage. The survey didn’t ask about mechanical hard disk drives (HDDs).
