Top Data Recovery Trends Happening in 2020

Businesses need to understand the technological trends in data recovery and storage to stay efficient and relevant.


The year 2020 has not unfolded the way anyone would have expected, but some changes in the tech world that have been positives for businesses with data backup and recovery needs. With many corporate entities operating with a majority remote workforce, there is an even greater need for innovative ways to store and recover corporate data. Losing critical data puts a strain on business operations and as the tech industry evolves, it is imperative that IT managers and other business leaders understand the trends that can affect their own data security needs.

Existing and Future Trends in the Data Recovery Field

Trends in the data recovery industry have become staples in how businesses operate and protect their files. Some of these developments people can expect to see this year and into the future include:

  • Disaster Recovery as a Service–Businesses are partnering with managed IT providers to take care of data recovery if the need should arise. In this instance, the provider offers data restoration, user access security and ensures the company stays abreast of how things are operating.
  • Internet of Things–Most digital devices manufactured today can transfer data over a network without any human or computer interaction. Mobile phones being the most common, sensors and medical devices are qualifiers as well. This media is used even more so with remote workforces and have already impacted businesses.
  • Comprehensive Approach to Data Protection and Disaster Recovery–Data security providers are now viewing backup and restoration as a cohesive and streamlined process. When paired together, downtime will be limited and more data can be saved.
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning–Using larger and more efficient means for data management means the backup and recovery efforts must match. Corporations are using AI for their operations and this adaptation will only grow in the future.

Evolution of Data Storage Types

No longer are companies bound to the traditional storage methods of SD Cards and Hard Disk Drives (HDD). How data is stored has shifted to secure USBs, flash storage, and Cloud services. With the massive amounts of data created daily, experts are working on new ways to store data through DNA storage and other long-lasting storage mediums. Current data storage techniques that are in their initial stages include:

  • Crystal Technology–data is stored in long-lasting glass structures that are made with lasers. Data is encoded on the glass surfaces and this innovation is known as 5D tech. 
  • Helium Hard Drives–an emerging energy-efficient hard drive with more density and less resistance.
  • Shingled Machine Recording Device: this technology overlaps each new track with part of a previously written track, much like shingles on a roof. Aerial density increases as write heads become thinner.
