The Past, Present, and Future of Data Storage
As we approach the end of 2011 and look forward to another year, we pause to reflect on the long history of data storage. Mankind's ability to create, process, store, and recall information is light years ahead of the days of cave paintings and engravings on stone tablets. Vast amounts of information can be stored on drives smaller than your thumb, and data centers are cropping up at an increasingly high rate.
What does the future of data storage hold? Are we really that close to holographic drives? Is 2012 the year SSDs become mainstream? Will our data continue to leap from our desktop to the cloud? One thing is for sure: people want their information stored securely and accessible whenever they want it and wherever they are. Mozy, for one, is doing its part to make that possible.
