Shipment of high capacity LTO Tape storage capacity hit a record of 152.9 Exabytes (EB) in 2023, driven in part by rapid data generation and the increased infrastructure requirements of enterprises for AI solutions.

In the coming year, artificial intelligence (AI) is poised to shift from a conceptual discourse to a practical reality, transforming organizational processes across various industries, including government entities. Assessing how technology will impact on the modern workplace in the year ahead, Alyssa Blackburn, predicts three areas where AI will have an impact.

Komprise, a specialist in analytics-driven unstructured data management and mobility, has extended its Microsoft collaboration with the availability of Komprise Intelligent Tiering for Azure.

Spectra Logic has launched a new archive solution for organizations that must manage and preserve massive amounts of data for long-term retention purposes. The new solution, called Spectra Digital Archive, is powered by Spectra StorCycle, an enterprise software designed to easily and cost-effectively archive data at scale.

The workload driving the largest share of enterprise IT infrastructure spending in the first half of 2022 (1H22) was Structured Databases/Data Management, according to analyst firm International Data Corporation (IDC).

The IBM Diamondback Tape Library is a new high-density archival storage solution that is physically air-gapped to help protect against ransomware and other cyber threats in hybrid cloud environments.

Dell Technologies has successfully completed an Infosec Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) Assessment of APEX Backup Services, its hosted data protection offering for Software as-a-Service applications, endpoints and hybrid workloads, at the PROTECTED level.

More data has traditionally meant more problems. An increase in data can result in problems such as ransomware, disasters, or data loss of any kind. Data Protector standardizes and consolidates backups across multiple platforms. It provides secure, comprehensive backup protection for business-critical data and applications whether virtual, physical, or online in the cloud.

57% of Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) respondents reported a severe loss of critical data in their organisation, according to an annual global research study by backup and recovery vendor Arcserve. Of that number, 38% had permanent data loss.

Nearly half of respondents to a global survey of IT and security professionals say their company depends on outdated, legacy backup and recovery infrastructure to manage and protect their data. In some cases, this technology is more than 20 years old, and was designed long before today’s multi-cloud era and onslaught of sophisticated cyberattacks plaguing enterprises globally.
