PASIG Webinar - Storage Technology Trends for Archiving
Original Broadcast:  July 11, 2013

Today's archives continue to face rapid data growth with tight budgets. How do the various storage technologies compare today, and what does the future look like? What technologies should you be considering in your archive planning? Dr. Robert Raymond will talk about tiered storage and then review technology trends and future projections for each, including flash, disk, tape, etc. Dr. Raymond will cover the technology risks and challenges for each as part of the discussion. Tom Wultich will cover the economics of tape in particular, including history and trends, as well as future projections. He will show the results of the model for future pricing, which you can use to estimate your future archive costs. Tom and Bob will also be available to answer questions about the Linear Tape File System, tiered storage, data integrity, and more.
