The future of data storage

Scientists predict that by 2022, 1.7 megabytes of data per second will create for every individual on the planet. The amount of data generated each year increases, and one-third of all data will pass through the cloud in 2022.


Personal users are not the only ones interested in cloud services. Growth based on company growth: businesses will expect to spend almost three times as much on cloud services in 2021 as in 2014, as many companies move their files to cloud storage. Traditional storage platforms are often unable to meet the scale and cost performance required for companies in today's fast-paced environment.


We know that cloud storage is not only present but also future - otherwise we would not be involved in this business. However, this will not be the only storage solution. Here are some future storage systems that we can use in addition to the cloud.


Data sticks

These days most files are transferred to USB sticks. Although small and notoriously risky, USB sticks are a hassle-free, easy way to get your files from one computer to another. The future solution for data drives could be Data STICKIES - a file storage drive that looks like a sticky note and can hold up to 32 GB of data. That would be possible with a new material known as graphene: a layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal grid. Although losing Data STICKIE can be easy, it seems like an innovative way to transfer files.


Liquid hard drives

Existing hard drives are the same: difficult. However, this may be different in the future. A team of scientists has discovered that it is possible to use microscopic particles suspended in liquids to store information in our files. This liquid can be heated and cooled for data storage and reading, and scientists believe that one tablespoon of liquid can hold up to one terabyte of data.


DNA data

Scientists have long speculated that DNA sequencing could use to store electronic data. However, a small piece of DNA contains all the information about our genetic makeup - it is an effective way to store data. Researchers estimate that one gram of DNA can have about 450 exabytes of information: hundreds of times more than all the information on the cloud today. Furthermore, the data stored in DNA can remain for hundreds of thousands of years without the risk of being destroyed or broken.


These solutions are far from ready.


Although they may seem like brainstorming, we never know what the future holds. However, in 1995 a journalist predicted that online stores would never gain popularity because there were no salespeople. What do you think? That is one of the reasons why e-commerce is booming. Presumably, we might like paper sheet storage cards because they are easier to lose or save a copy of our DNA in a DNA-based storage system. You never know
