This IDC Market Perspective discusses the evolution of the enterprise memory/storage hierarchy and how storage performance requirements are rapidly increasing, driven by a growing need for real-time data."The enterprise memory/storage hierarchy was relatively stable for nearly three decades but has changed significantly and relatively quickly over the past 10 years," according to John Rydning, research vice president, Hard Disk Drives and Semiconductors. "Growing demand for real-time data, the emergence of new storage technologies, and the buildout of edge infrastructure will further reshape the enterprise memory/storage hierarchy in the decade ahead."
