Storage Agnostic HA/DR Protection will be required – Companies are no longer tethered to their SAN or NFS storage. All manner of storage solutions are being used in the cloud and on-premises. Protecting all of that data and enabling the flexibility to implement hybrid cloud environments will mean a greater need for high availability solutions for all types of storage.
Expectations for Automation and Ease of Use from Machine Learning and AI Will Extend to More IT Infrastructure Purchasing – Enterprises will find new applications for machine learning technologies that automate manual processes and enhance monitoring capabilities and products that deliver deeper monitoring, more automation and value-added information will be in demand. For example, availability solutions that provide application-aware monitoring and automation of configuration and management tasks would be prioritized over traditional failover solutions. New innovations in HA will emerge to handle the increasing complexity of failures and disasters brought on by IoT devices and their dependencies.READ MORE
