Access "Which data storage technologies will reshape storage shops in 2013?"

Issue Overview

Storage magazine - December 2012 Vol. 11 No. 10

Each year, our editors pick the hottest new storage technologies that are likely to appear in data centers in the coming year. We skip the "gee whiz" science project type of technologies and focus on those that, while still new, have developed sufficiently to be useful additions to data storage environments. With that in mind, we describe how flash storage, cloud services, specialized storage arrays and 21st-century data protection techniques are likely to find their way into your shops in 2013. We also review our predictions from last year and list several up-and-coming storage techs on the verge of being "hot."

Also in the December issue, we revisit backup deduplication to assess the state of the technology, and report the results of our latest Quality Awards survey where users report on their satisfaction with the service and reliability of their tape libraries.   Access >>>
