AI driven storage Infrastructure: Markets, technology, products and market forecast

Of the three key parts of hardware infrastructure – compute, storage, and networking – compute has made significant progress and has gotten most buzz. However AI applications have tremendous appetite for data and that has driven demand for storage. Data is being dubbed as next oil and is equally important to the accuracy of AI as the algorithm itself. The focus of this report is on the storage aspect of the IT infrastructure driven by AI. This reports analyzes technology and business trends for storage. It also provides details on storage requirements of different types of data and how that translates to storage needs. It evaluates flash arrays as a product and looks at different aspects of object storage, databases and software infrastructure. Key use cases that need significant amount of data are provided in the report. An analysis of top vertical markets and the intersection of the use cases is also provided. There are four parts to this report: market, technology, products and forecast.

The market section of the report focuses on key use cases and applications that are driving the need for storage. A summary of data types and how they impact storage needs is provided. A preview of the market drivers, challenges and business models is also provided.

The report also includes profiles of key industry players and analyst comments.

The technology part focuses on wide range of aspects such as Flash array, capacity, interface, storage location, scale up vs scale-out, object storage, databases and so on. Details of neural networks and how that pertains to AI acceleration is also provided. Technology section discusses challenges and opportunities facing the storage market from technology point of view.

The product section focuses on different vendors, their products, differentiators and our assessment. A comparison of training and inference aspect from storage point of view is also provided. A list of buyers and users is provided for each vendor based on publicly available information. We have also evaluated start-ups and how they could pose threat to dominant players.
