SODA Foundation Announces 2022 Data & Storage Trends Survey

SAN FRANCISCO (July 12, 2022) — To address evolving Data and Storage needs throughout the industry, SODA Foundation, in partnership with Linux Foundation Research, is once again conducting a survey to provide insights into challenges, gaps, and trends for data and storage in the era of cloud native, edge, AI, and 5G. The results will serve to guide the SODA Foundation technical direction and ecosystem. With this survey, we seek to answer:

  • What are the data & storage challenges faced by end users?
  • What are the key trends shaping the data & storage industry?
  • Which open source data & storage projects are users interested in?
  • What cloud strategies are being adopted by businesses?

Through new insights generated from the data and storage community, end users will be better equipped to make decisions, vendors can improve their products, and the SODA Foundation can establish new technical directions — and beyond!

Please participate now; we intend to close the survey in August.

Privacy and confidentiality are important to us. Neither participant names, nor their company names, will be displayed in the final results.

This survey should take no more than 15 minutes of your time.
