The smart home is an epicenter of digital life able to support the rapid evolution, scalability needs, and constant movement of the world’s data. It focuses on convenience, comfort, security, and cost savings while anticipating needs using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). The impending reality is that every single aspect of our homes will both generate and require data as the Data Age advances. That data needs safekeeping whether it’s being stored at home, at the edge, or in the cloud. Seagate has industry-leading storage solutions (e.g. BarraCuda and IronWolf [Synology, ioSafe]) for every use case the smart home of the future will reveal.
