SV 2012 explores the convergent needs of digital storage to support cloud content distribution and sharing, user generated content capture and use and professional media and entertainment applications.
The 2012 Storage Visions Conference continues its focus on future storage visions. In 2012 we focus our attention upon the debate between local storage and on-line or cloud storage, especially in an age of increasing high resolution content. This leads to our theme of: Heavy Storage for Thin Clients. With ever higher resolution and even stereoscopic content being created commercially as well as by consumers we ask where this content will be stored and who has responsibility for organizing it and protecting it.
As always we welcome discussions of storage devices
and the developing hierarchy of storage for both professional as well
as consumer content applications. The incessant
demand for digital storage in more places
and applications is creating new requirements and new storage devices
to meet these requirements as well as creating
new opportunities to combine existing storage
technologies together in new ways. Where ever we go we will need storage
and Storage Visions is where you can find out about that need and the
devices, systems, services and software to meet those needs.

Many Changes Lie Ahead...
The coming decade will see new storage architectures developing including home storage virtualization, cloud and remote storage as well as new models for mobile storage. As in the past, new storage technologies will help to spawn new applications to allow people to capture and enjoy more of their world, more or their everyday experiences and share it with others. We will develop new tools to capture and organize our lives, we will see more content created by more people and more ways to distribute, monetize and make that content useful. From cloud storage to life-logs, from external direct attached and networked storage to the increasingly high resolution content that we will surround ourselves with wherever we go—we live in an age when the personal and collective memory of humans will reach new levels.
