Hard Drives: Storied Past, Uncertain Future

The hard drive has been the staple of the storage industry since the first one was shipped in 1956, and will continue to remain so for the foreseeable future. Eventually, new technologies will be developed that allow higher amounts of data to be stored and accessed faster and remain archived longer than possible using hard drives.

CRN takes you back in time, and into the future, to explore the development of hard drive technology, much of which was centered around development at IBM thanks to that company's lock on computer technology for much of the 1950s to 1980s.

Check out the rest of our special report on the state of the storage industry, which originally ran as an exclusive on the CRN Tech News App in November.
