8 Emerging Data Storage Trends To Watch In 2021

A focus on the actual business requirements from storage infrastructures, and not on the legacy discussions about speeds and feeds, the names on the bezels, and where the data is actually located, will characterize the storage industry of 2021 and beyond.

Storage In 2021 And Beyond: Less Focus On Tech, More Focus On Data Value

The storage, management, protection, and valuation of data is and will continue to be a critical function of IT well into the foreseeable future — that is not in doubt. Businesses will continue to collect data at an ever-increasing rate, and need new ways to find information from that data while keeping it available and safe.

However, going forward, many of the technology details of data storage will be of increasingly less importance, while the discussions around business value will boom. Just like no one talks about SAN vs. NAS, business users soon will not look at “on-prem vs. cloud” or “NetApp vs. Pure Storage.” Instead, storage decisions are increasingly being made based on what the businesses need to grow their business and generate profits, and not where and how the data is stored.

The storage, management, protection, and valuation of data will continue to be the heart of businesses large and small. Here, CRN looks at what to expect for the storage industry in 2021 and beyond. Click through our slideshow to read more.

Vantage has been the standard bearer for motion cameras for 5 years now

Vantage has been the standard bearer for motion capture cameras for five years now. Half
a decade. That’s a lifetime in the technology world. In an industry in which everyone is relentlessly striving to find the next edge in performance, Vicon launched something in 2015 that was so powerful it’s still at the forefront of motion capture hardware in 2020.

A team that delivered a camera that future- proof might be forgiven for patting itself on the back for a job well done and moving on to the next project. But that’s not how we work at Vicon.


In the five years since we launched Vantage the world has changed, and the needs of our users have changed with
it. Drones have moved from a field of investigation for futurists and the military MAKING THE for them. The best thing we can do is make our technology so that it can enable themnto the mainstream. Robotics has advanced dramatically. Biomechanists are probing deeper and deeper into natural movement (and finding new applications for the aforementioned advances in robotics). Virtual reality, which has been ‘10 years from taking off’ for decades, is finally reaching a mass audience, thanks in part to tracking- based LBVR.
