A promotional film that IBM made in the 1950s looks at the creation of the first hard disk drive and is a retro video throwback to tech innovation and marketing of the time reminding us how far we’ve come and of artifacts from our own data recovery archives.

Astronomers from the Event Horizon Telescope project revealed the first-ever image of the black hole that sits at the center of our galaxy known as Sagittarius A*. It was produced using observation data collected from the network of telescopes situated around the globe.

Listen to a short story from the CBL lab: a hospital RAID crashes and IT department calls in the CBL data recovery experts. We also discuss the rising data protection challenges in healthcare IT.
