Throughout the history of business, well before modern times, humans have used data to make more informed decisions. It is one of the main drivers of human progress. The history of data storage dates to pre-historic times where cave people used manganese oxide and charcoal to document information on rock walls. Chinese ordinarily wrote documents on bamboo. In India palm leaves served as a storage medium. During the time of the Incas, they used the Quipu that served as memory and consisted of knots. So the industry we are in is ancient and has been indispensable since the dawn of mankind. The world of computer data storage has never been more exciting especially since the advent of cloud data storage. The power of data storage devices is now enabling society to acquire insights from data that boggles the mind.
