The Storage Visions Conference selected an attention getting slogan for their 2014 showing: Fast is Beautiful, but Size Matters. We all want such features in our storage devices: quick, small in size and large in capacity.

To learn which companies can satisfy your desires, plan to be at the 13th annual Storage Visions Conference where attendees can hear, meet, and speak with leaders in the digital storage arena. Expect to rub shoulders with industry leaders, manufacturers, and end users to network and learn. Conference attendees are automatically registered for the 2014 CES Exhibits Only badge which you can pick up at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas while attending the Storage Visions event, January 5th and 6th just before CES.

Via the Storage Visions website, you can also join the Entertainment Storage Alliance, organized by Tom Coughlin, Executive Director, which provides a networking and communications vehicle that is not restricted to an annual event but is always available on the Internet. Coughlin says: ?By the end of this decade I believe that the entertainment content value chain will consume the majority of every sort of digital storage media and device on the planet! Digital storage is our storage. It is the means for passing our culture to the future. The face that future generations will see when they look back at our times will be observed through the medium of our digital storage archives.? The site contains industry news and featured articles.

Sponsors and exhibitors at the Storage Visions conference range from Aberdeen Servers and Storage to Ultrium. Aberdeen Petarack, not to be confused with a pet rock, holds one petabyte in a 42U rack. Ultrium?s goal is to provide open format specifications to simplify the complex array of tape storage options. The LTO (Linear Tape-Open) Ultrium format is a scalable, adaptable open tape storage format developed and enhanced by LTO technology providers HP, IBM and Quantum to help address the growing demands of data protection, backup, restore and archive applications in most server environments. LTO combines advantages of linear multi-channel, bi-directional formats and dual partitioning.

The Coldest Journey team records their adventure on SanDisk as they trek across Antarctica in extreme weather

SanDisk Extreme Pro SDHC with operating temperatures of -13ºF to 185ºF (-25ºC to 85 ºC) and storage temperatures of -40ºF to 185ºF (-40ºC to 85ºC) is the product of choice for recording The Coldest Journey. The Antarctic trek is lead by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, first person to visit both the North and South Poles. Fiennes says: ?It?s hard to convey just how extreme the Antarctic climate is in winter … only the toughest equipment survives. I?m really glad that the unique record of The Coldest Journey is going to be stored and backed up on SanDisk SSDs.?
