Spring is the season for new beginnings so let’s look at how new applications with new requirements and breakthrough storage technologies will bring fresh approaches to the ways we use and store our data.
The first-ever image of a black hole was revealed to the world by an international team of researchers from the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) project in a culmination of years of work, astronomy and computer science feats. How much data must you compute to get an image of something that’s 55 million light-years away, has a mass 6.5 billion times that of our own sun, from a network of 8 telescopes that combine to make a dish the size of the Earth?
Western Digital announced earlier today that it will be purchasing Hitachi Global Storage Technologies in a deal worth $4.3 Billion. The landscape of storage manufacturers just got a bit smaller, but it remains a massive growing technology industry.
Unless you have experienced a hard drive failure, you may not be aware of the complexity how data is stored. A CBL data recovery expert sees a string of ones and zeroes organized in a perfect pattern otherwise known as your once-in-a-lifetime trip to Paris. It’s all about perspective.
Here’s a picture of a head stack assembly removed from a hard drive. It was taken from a multi-platter drive during a recovery. So how do you remove the head stack from a hard drive? Very carefully.
