Hot Storage Technologies: 2012
Storage magazine and SearchStorage.com editors put their heads together and predict the top new techs that will have the most profound impact on storage environments over the next 12 months. We also grade our choices from the previous year. See what storage technologies should be on your must-have list for 2012.

And don’t miss our monthly columns and commentary, or the results of our Snapshot reader survey.
