2021 Data Storage Outlook Report Insight: Storage Technologies and Advancements

A 2018 IDC report, commissioned by Seagate Technology, predicts that the Global Datasphere will grow to 175 zettabytes (ZB) of digital data by 2025.

“I started in 1984 as a technician and, boy, has it been a remarkable journey. I moved to engineering, debugging and designing a number of boards. Later, I helped design our first tape library called Bullfrog – the industry’s first Fibre Channel-attached tape library. I then transitioned to assessing vertical markets to grow our business. Through all the changing roles over the years, Spectra’s people have provided me with a strong sense of family. Heck, I even married one of them. Today I help drive Spectra’s product and business focus and am grateful for the broad experience (and fun) I have had along the way.” Read More
