Storage Superstars: Meet The Visionaries
Moore’s Law, which states that the number of transistors that can be placed on an integrated circuit doubles every two years or so, is a commonly-used measure of the rapid development of computer technology.
The storage industry, however, long ago transcended Moore’s Law, with new hardware components, systems, software, and services being developed at a pace unmatched in any industry.
None of this would have been possible without the early realization that the cost of raw storage capacity would start approaching free, and the vision that new ways to store, backup, retrieve, archive and, above all, manage users’ and companies’ data would be required.
