Latest storage publications
With data being produced at an exponential rate, research teams and organisations are working hard to improve the efficiency and sustainability of storage technology, leading to a raft of experimental research projects.
Last month, researchers from the University of Alberta demonstrated a new atomic-based storage technique that uses hydrogen gas to rewrite data. And a Microsoft storage project recently announced it had successfully stored the movie Superman on quartz glass.
Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) is no longer a buzzword. As noted by Justin Warren in his article on Forbes, most HCI vendors now offer HCI as an overall offering and that’s how it should be. The technology is not dead; it has become a natural part of the data storage technology world. Now that it has been transformed into an essential cog in the engine that drives the enterprise data storage world forward, it’s important to recap the true promise of HCI and why it’s now taken so seriously..
Researchers have developed an improved atomic storage manufacturing process that could finally make ultra-efficient, high-density storage solutions a reality.
Ultra-high density storage devices have been around for a while and typically rely on single molecules or atoms to store bits of information.
A distributed cloud storage service that stores encrypted data on the spare disk space of users around the world using blockchain technology has revealed its pricing model and launch date.
Storj Labs’ Tardigrade service has been in beta for developers, businesses and consumers since August and currently has 400 active users. Today, the company has come forward with a pricing model which it claims is more economical than legacy cloud storage providers.
Microsoft and Warner Bros have teamed up to store the 1978 movie Superman on a piece of quartz glass the size of a drinks coaster.
The achievement is part of a Microsoft Azure initiative called Project Silica, aimed at developing long-lasting storage technologies for the cloud that reduce the provider’s long-term storage costs and environmental footprint.
