Smart storage. Not an entirely new concept, but these days it is doing more than just storing data. Today’s smartest storage starts with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. IT Pro Today brought this topic to our attention in their article, “How Intelligent Storage Is Bringing More Value to Organizations.”

Intelligent storage is a storage system or service that uses AI to continuously learn and adapt to its hybrid cloud environment to better manage and serve data. It can be deployed as hardware on-premises, as a virtual appliance or as a cloud service. Intelligent storage can move data where it needs to be and proactively optimize data through its life cycle. It provides data protection and encryption to eliminate potential security threats.

These days the demand for our storage systems is greater than ever before. Users want their storage systems to help extract maximum value from the data while minimizing operational cost and complexity.
