Data That Lives Forever in the Cloud: Organic Storage Keeps Data Alive Indefinitely

June 21, 2011 by · Comments Off on Data That Lives Forever in the Cloud: Organic Storage Keeps Data Alive Indefinitely 

Webmaster ToolboxSan Francisco, CA – As GigaOM Pro, The 451 Group and North Bridge Venture Partners prepare to announce the results of their inaugural Future of Cloud Computing survey, the CEO of Scality stated that the future of disruptive technologies and the value chain could not be predicted by asking current decision makers.

Lecat said, “A survey highlights some fascinating trends, but it can only tell you what today’s leaders are thinking today. As Albert Einstein said, ‘We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.’ You can’t predict the future of disruptive technologies with today’s thinking. For example, when CIOs in the mid-nineties were asked if they would dismantle their private networks to replace them with encryption over the public internet, they responded that it was not secure enough. Time has passed, and this is now the standard architecture. What a majority of people think about the future today may not actually be the future tomorrow.” Read more
