Storage is one word that gets mentioned regularly when talking about computing, and technological devices. Data has to be stored before and while processing, as well as information, after data processing. This is to ensure information can be accessed anytime needed without repeating the whole process of data processing.
Data storage is primarily the place where data is held in an electromagnetic or optical form for access by a computer processor. With advances in technology over the years, significant changes have been experienced in the area of storage. It now transcends even the physical form of old, with the adoption and wide use of cloud storage for a lot of services.
These cloud storages are not just holding data, they are holding big data. With storages easily accommodating petabytes of data.
Some of the storages termed scalable can store as much data as you want and access it when needed. Thereby stopping you from guessing your future storage needs and scale up and down as required, dramatically increasing business agility.
Example is Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), which is object storage with a simple web service interface to store and retrieve any amount of data from anywhere on the web. It can be used as primary storage for cloud-native applications as well as many other functions.
