Cloudian solution integrates cloud storage and compute platforms.
The growth has been fueled by increased spending on cloud computing, mobile devices, and other data storage devices.
Cloud computing has managed to make the world's already colossal appetite for data storage even more voracious.
Amazon Web Services Simple Storage Service (S3) service launched just six years ago, followed by Enterprise Compute Cloud (EC2).
A man walks inside the Pionen high-security computer storage facility of Swedish Bahnhof, one of the companies to host WikiLeaks servers, Dec 9, 2010, in Stockholm.
Panasas today took the wraps off ActiveStor 14, a new line of hybrid storage systems that is the result of applying some of the lesson imparted by company's high performance computing (HPC) storage legacy to today's storage challenges.
For ICONN Computer Services, however, adding mass storage products to its content management repertoire was worth the risk.
Yet the amount of data being collected and stored is quickly outstripping the ability of conventional storage and compute resources to actually make sense out of that data.
While powerful laptop computers make it possible to do much of your post work on the road, high-speed storage in a portable package can still be tough to find.
In this column, I often discuss Storage Area Networks (SANs) and the way their capabilities will eventually change the way networked computer systems are built.
The USB 2.0 standard is helping to revolutionize a lot of computing processes, and portable storage is probably the area getting the most benefit.
Seagate (NASDAQ: STX) is a maker of internal hard drives, external hard drives, and storage-related computer products.
A reserved area on a computer's storage device (hard disk, optical disc, etc.
Though its name is perhaps best known for cellphones, the company's 10 R&D centers also conduct research on computer software, digital TV, advanced printing functions, and high storage-low power hard drives.

In science:

We found the data transfer times from the underlying block device to be longer than the time required to compute the weak design on the fly, albeit this may change with the availability of high-speed storage.
A modular framework for randomness extraction based on Trevisan's construction
While Nearest-Neighbor (NN) algorithms are known to be very efficient for solv­ tasks, this effectiveness is counter­ ing classification balanced by large computational and storage require­ ments.
Combining Feature and Prototype Pruning by Uncertainty Minimization
Another instance is the capability referred to as working memory (Durstewitz et al., 2000; Baddeley and A.D., 2003): just as a computer requires RAM for its calculations despite having a hard drive for long term storage, the brain must continually store and delete information to perform almost any cognitive task.
Interplay between Network Topology and Dynamics in Neural Systems
Assuming that the decoherence process affects the quantum computer’s qubits independently, Shor has found a technique that allows the storage of an arbitrary state of n qubits using 9n qubits in a decoherence-resistant way: even if one of the qubits decoheres, the original state can be reconstructed perfectly .
New Trends in Quantum Computing
It is used in telecommunications, for example to compress the information required to convey television pictures, and data storage in computers.
Quantum Computing
To simulate a state vector in a 2n -dimensional Hilbert space, a classical computer needs to manipulate vectors containing of order 2n complex numbers, whereas a quantum computer requires just n qubits, making it much more efficient in storage space.
Quantum Computing
The issue of spin polarized carriers in semiconductors has become active due to interest in their possible use in electronics, computing, and information storage. Awschalom described how laser pulses can be used to excite, and then probe, polarized carriers in GaAs.
Some Recent Issues in Quantum Magnetism
Use of such mother templates in a template bank will bring about a reduction in computational costs up to a factor of 10 and a saving on storage by a factor of 100.
Mother templates for gravitational wave chirps
This brings about a saving on computational costs by a factor of up to 10 and storage costs by a factor 100.
Mother templates for gravitational wave chirps
This way of computing templates saves on computational costs by a factor of between 5 (for T −approximants) and 10 (for P -approximants), depending on the signal model, and storage costs by a factor of 100 (the number of templates in the ‘m-coordinate’).
Mother templates for gravitational wave chirps
Essentially, network bandwidth was not an issue because the computation to communication ratio of our application was extremely high, and hard disks were not needed on the nodes because our problem did not require any significant amount of data storage.
Computational Asteroseismology
Fifty five years after nuclear spin states and spin echoes were proposed for (classical) data storage [AGH+55], nuclear magnetic resonance thus became the workhorse for the early exploration of experimental quantum computation.
Experimental Quantum Computation with Nuclear Spins in Liquid Solution
The Data Acquisition System will come from Japan; on-site data storage and analysis will be done with Fermilab’s Enstore system and local computing.
Bringing the SciBar Detector to the Booster Neutrino Beam
No matter which particular fragmentation model is used in the store, it is also possible to compute the paths associated to every storage structure, view, or index.
Path Summaries and Path Partitioning in Modern XML Databases
The use of the web, faster computers and essentially unlimited storage have made it practical to save and disseminate great quantities of data.
