Whitepaper: Storage and Backup

by National Centre for Technology in EducationJan 01, 2008

Data Storage is a term used to describe a holding place for digital data (e.g., word processing, graphics, spreadsheets or e-mail files) on a computer or on a related data storage device. Storage implies a repository that retains its content without power. Typically data is stored on the hard drive of a computer, which has a definite capacity (e.g., 40GB or 120GB), but data storage on alternative media is becoming increasingly routine. Ideally, data should be backed up systematically to other devices in order to facilitate disaster recovery measures and avoid hard disk congestion.
