Dr. Georgios Rimikis – Hitachi Data Systems: “We see ten trends in three categories in 2015, all revolve around the roof on Business-defined IT. In convergence, automation and integration segment are: Software-defined storage and management automation and faster introduction of convergent platforms. Thanks to convergent platforms, which are integrated into all systems and the application stack, enterprise applications such as SAP HANA can introduce in a shorter time and thus achieve a faster ROI.Alles zu ROI auf CIO.de Alles zu SAP auf CIO.de
Through greater automation savings in resources and investments are also possible. Based on an intelligent orchestration layer an automated dynamic management of servers, storage and networking is possible that the workloads between private and public clouds distributed according to predefined parameters. These include cost, performance and location, and the appropriate governance guidelines. “ Span> p>
“Our infrastructure will focus on storage virtualization -.. obtained at both global level company so a single storage pool that spans multiple physical storage systems at different locations since the flood of data is to continue to grow, it is essential for companies to be loaded or get an overview where that information is stored and which copies there are always more intelligent flash modules -. the third trend in this area – can help to make the operation faster.
We also expect 2015 Solid State Drives (SSDs) are being replaced by Enterprise Flash modules. This flash memory has been developed specifically for enterprise requirements and are characterized by high performance, reliability and capacity. “ Span> p>
“The third segment of trends revolves around Big data, Internet of things (IoT), hybrid cloud and the so-called “data Lakes” for big data analysis. with “data Lake” accumulation of large amounts of data are meant. As with a pond can take samples from it, analyze accordingly and deduce recommendations for action . The data in the “pond” are static and can be stored for example in a public cloud.
This also applies to a large part of the data that will be generated for example by the Internet of Things (IoT) and analyzed with big data tools. Metadata should be encrypted and well protected behind the corporate firewalls. Therefore analysts as Tech Pro Response assume that 70 percent of all businesses eitheruse or already plan Hybrid Clouds .
The advantages of hybrid clouds are obvious: On the one hand, companies profit from the speed, flexibility and cost advantages of a public cloud. On the other hand, the hybrid model has the flexibility of a private cloud solution behind the corporate firewall.”
