An article by Henry Newman writing for the Enterprise Storage Forum is truly thought-provoking. He talks about the problems we face in storing data in the electronic age...and more importantly....retrieving it in a usable form.
We all know that data formats and physical storage media change over time making data saved under old formats and with old devices inaccessible. And we also know that there are no easy solutions to the problem.
Henry's article gives an overview of the issues from the perspective of a data storage professional with 28 years of experience behind him. You can read the article at: http://www.enterprisestorageforum.com/continuity/features/article.php/3812496
