The Past, Present and Future of Data Storage – Infographic

I stumbled on this graphic by our brothers in storage over at Mozy that talks about the history of storage and where things are looking to go over the next few years. It’s interesting when you’ve been around the block a few times to remember some of these storage devices, and equally exciting to see where things could be going.

What really stood out for me in this graphic was Cloud and SSD storage.  This article on Cloud Storage Trends validates that consumer use for cloud storage is on the rise and not likely to slow down over the next few years.

This other article on cloud storage states that while 64% of people think it’s risky, 45% still use it. (Although, I think the author forgot to carry the one when doing the math.)

Then there’s SSD’s. This handy article from Storage Review.com does a nice comparison between SSD’s & HDD’s so you can see line-by-line the benefits of each.  As with all emerging technologies, as prices decline, usage will likely rise given the benefits of an SSD over an HDD.

Storage isn’t going away and as we continue moving faster in this digital world, it’s going to become as essential as food and water. So be prepared and back it up.

  • Hi there! This is kind of off topic but
    I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin.
    Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Cheers

    There are a slew of blog sites that will allow you to create something without a huge degree of technical experience required. Tumblr and WordPress both come to mind, depending on what you’re looking to do. You can probably use Google and search “Blog Software” and get a good amount of results.

  • Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar

    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything
    you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any help is very much appreciated.

  • Jonathan Long

    Short version – we have a team that does comment reviews and we have a system in place that they have to be approved before being posted live. This is mostly for the sake of reviewing for our general community guideline adherence (profanity, abuse, etc.). There isn’t a specific app we’ve found for this and mostly because we do like that “human touch”.

  • We absolutely love your blog and find nearly all of your post’s to be just what I’m looking for.
    Do you offer guest writers to write content for yourself?
    I wouldn’t mind producing a post or elaborating on most of the subjects you write about
    here. Again, awesome site!
