How today’s Enterprises access and move large data sets from Endpoints to Core

Mass data is going places. Drawing on 2021 IDC research, this report shows the challenges presented by the current shifts in data gravity, which pull masses of data in two directions—toward the edge and the multicloud core. How can businesses remove the bottlenecks blocking the value of data sets that can range in size from 100TB to petabytes?



Today, 47% of enterprises use a centralized cloud storage architecture. In two years, that number will fall to 22%. Conversely, 25% of respondents currently have a hybrid storage architecture (both centralized and edge locations). That number will rise to 47% in two years.

As a result, data increasingly needs real-time processing at the edge and transport to the cloud to extract more value from it through computationally intensive tasks such as machine learning (ML) or artificial intelligence (AI).

The data sets that keep moving, keep growing in volume, too: The amount of enterprise data is currently rising at the amazing average annual growth rate of 42%.

To unlock data’s potential, you must first be able to move it—seamlessly. How does free-flowing mass data enable innovation and boost business outcomes? Find out in this research report where we will explore:

  • Optimizing your architecture for big data & AI/ML workloads
  • Solving for increasingly complex data storage needs
  • Defining storage architectures for shifting priorities
  • Data flow imperatives for different phases of AI/ML workflow
