Now, we all want smarter, more automated, self-optimizing infrastructure -- especially with storage -- but I don't see storage infrastructure components engaging in a human conversation with people about anything anytime soon. Storage is definitely getting smarter in more practical ways, however, and these changes are being seen in places such as data center storage architecture. I'm excited by the hot storage trend toward embedding machine learning algorithms aimed at key optimization, categorization, search and pattern detection tasks.
