The above article was really interesting. Especially considering that I’m considering using could storage as part of my digital preservation solution for our collection of (soon to be all) digitized newspapers.

One thing in particular that shot a wave of fear through me was the mention of the leveling of of the rate of platter density and thus the rapid reduction in price of storage. Lucky that our collection is small and the growth is expected to be very slow, but this limits the extent to which is very attractive solution to storage could scale to large projects at later dates.
