Storage I/O trends

Is Optical Storage still relevant?

Here’s a piece Alan Earls did for TechTarget on the subject.

I agree with that optical still has a role for preserving compliance and other fixed content data as doe’s magnetic tape. For example optical based CDs and DVDs are great archives for the music and videos that I purchased and transfer to my computer hard drive (or FLASH).

I will leave it to you to be the judge of if optical is still relevant or not.

Ok, nuff said.
