Hot data storage market technology trends for 2016
Check out our Hot Techs for 2016! For the past 13 years, we've honored the best and brightest technologies for the upcoming year. And as always, we are proud to present a batch of technologies we believe will make a big impact on data storage market technology.

In spite of statistics that tell us every minute of downtime costs thousands, many shops haven't established a plan that they can rely on. In this issue, you'll learn best practices for BC/DR planning that are frequently overlooked.
