As much as technology has evolved, hard disk drives are still delicate pieces of electronics. While solid state drives tend to be more able to withstand things like shock damage, hard disk drives still hold a substantial percentage of the marketplace, particularly in consumer electronics, because of their cost per megabyte.

The National Association of Broadcasters held its annual show earlier this month in Las Vegas, Nevada. As the premier show for media and entertainment professionals, the event showcased a lot of the newest technology used in production and recording studios. Unlike CES (the Consumer Electronics Show) 2013 earlier this year, the storage mediadisplay at NAB was designed for commercial applications. And, as more and more recording and production professionals rely on hard disk and solid state storage for their media, it's not surprising there were some surprising developments.

As media storage requirements grow larger, RAID arrays are becoming more popular for home and small business use. Whether you run a large company who has relied on your IT staff to configure and maintain a RAID array or server farm for years, or a small business owner now using RAID 0 or RAID 1 for greater storage capacity or enhanced data protection, it's not always easy to know who to call if your RAID array fails and you need emergency data recovery service.

Permitting employees to telecommute can reduce costs, but it can increase the chances of a security breech, damages to your server due to viruses and malware, and a data recovery emergency. One way to reduce these risks is through a virtual private network, which protects data transmitted in both directions: from employees' devices to your server and the other way around.

As technology advances, do-it-yourself data recovery software improves in its capabilities. But hard disk drives, hybrid drives and solid state drives are also becoming more complex. At the same time, as hard drives increase in capacity, the amount and value of the data stored increases, too. The risks associated with attempting do-it-yourself data recovery may not be worth it. Would you want to risk losing your entire music or movie collecting, potentially thousands of dollars worth of media? Valuable family photos? Or mission critical work files that you brought home because you didn't finish your work at the office?

Seagate Technology has become the first hard disk drive (HDD) manufacturer to ship 2 billion hard disk drives. Since the first HDDs were used commercially in 1956, prices have dropped, storage capacity has increased, and the industry has seen exponential sales growth.
