An external storage is a type of storage device, which can store the information for the data transfer from one device to other devices. These storage devices are not interpolated within the system. It is also referred as an external storage system or a secondary storage system. These storage devices are not restricted to a particular device and can be moved from one place to another without any data interruption. These devices are comprised of all the addressable data that do not belong to the main memory of the system. Moreover, external storage systems are also very convenient in transportation of data from one system to another.
External storage market has grown rapidly over the past few years. Digital transformation projects across verticals witnessed huge uptake and are also expected to contribute further in the near future. External storage gains popularity in various industries including IT & telecom, BFSI, and healthcare, owing to its supreme benefits such as high-speed random access of data and low power consumption.
