With the movement to remote work, M&E storage has shifted to leveraging private and public clouds to complement local storage in today's collaborative workflows.  Digital production may be starting to recover following safety precautions and greater use of automation.   Content distribution has surged to entertain those who are stuck at home.  At the same time new storage and memory technologies are playing a bigger role in M&E, including NVMe SSDs and NVMe-oF based storage systems.  This talk presents results from the 2020 Digital Storage in M&E report looking at trends in 2020 and projecting into the future for digital storage for video production, post production, content distribution and archiving.
