    The Advancements

    Storing important documents on your local PC has been common practice for years. We've seen the technology change drastically in a very short amount of time, and a lot of exciting innovations are on the way. Check out how far we've come since IBM first introduced the 960 bit punch card in 1928.

Last year, 2.4 billion people used the cloud for accessing email, social media, games, backup storage and apps. With this figure projected to reach 3.6 billion by 2018, it would appear that cloud computing is here to stay due to our need to store and access ever expanding amounts of data. But the cloud is just the beginning with exciting data storage developments on the horizon. 

This slideshow, provided by Ebuyer, depicts how far data storage has evolved since the IBM punch card in 1928 and further analyzes the future of this innovative industry. Datastickies, DNA storage and helium drives are just some of the possibilities for the future of data storage.
