Mass data storage for digital electronic systems plays a vital role in contemporary life, providing non-volatile and rapid data access for business, government, academic, military, and consumer applications ? The properties of these technologies may be illustrated in a ‘Tiered Storage Hierarchy’ pyramid, with the lower capacity, highest performance and most costly technologies at the top, down to the highest capacity, lowest performing, and least costly at the base.

The current roadmap of the bi-annual iNEMI Mass Storage Roadmap, like previous roadmaps beginning in 1996, includes participation and input from a broad spectrum of participants in the mass data storage industry, government, and academic organizations. ? It includes the status and outlook on all key mass storage technologies: Solid State, Magnetic, and Optical Storage. ? Solid State Storage has always provided the best performance and reliability, but at a price which has historically been too high for broad implementation.? ? Magnetic Data Storage, consisting of? Hard Disk (HDD), and Tape Drives, continues to provide the bulk of data storage requirements, playing a vital role in modern electronic data systems.? For some specific applications, requiring both high capacity and portability, Optical Storage technologies can provide a viable solution.? ?

New to this year’s edition is a section on Storage Systems, which includes the status and impact of these technologies on data systems, and critical factors such a power dissipation, which may drive future systems design and implementation.
