Holographs, Liquid-State and DNA: The Future of Data Storage

  • Holographs, Liquid-State and DNA: The Future of Data Storage-

    Multi-Cloud Storage

    Researchers at IBM are working on a new technology that they like to call "the cloud-of-clouds." They claim to have developed a service that allows you to move data between multiple cloud platforms in real time.

    The multi-cloud distribution storage system links public and private cloud services and is intended to help avoid service outages from the separate providers.

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.
