A DNA-based Archival Storage System

Demand for data storage is growing exponentially, but the capacity of existing storage media is not keeping up. Using DNA to archive data is an attractive possibility because it is extremely dense, with a raw limit of 1 exabyte/mm3 (10^9 GB/mm3), and long-lasting, with observed half-life of over 500 years.

This work presents an architecture for a DNA-based archival storage system. It is structured as a key-value store, and leverages common biochemical techniques to provide random access. We also propose a new encoding scheme that offers controllable redundancy, trading off reliability for density. We demonstrate feasibility, random access, and robustness of the proposed encoding with wet lab experiments. Finally, we highlight trends in biotechnology that indicate the impending practicality of DNA storage.

  • IT Security: Incident Planning and Response Recorded: Jun 16 2016 59 mins
    Mark Essayian, Microsoft
    It’s critical to know what is going on inside your network, what technology is being snuck into your firm, and how to educate employees about security precautions. IT management has a clear responsibility to protect, defend and remain vigilant over all systems and it doesn’t stop at antivirus on the desktop and a firewall to the Internet.

    Join this webcast to learn:
    •Why SMB’s are a prime target
    •How to help prevent your employees from being your biggest security threat
    •Proper asset inventory – you cannot protect what you do not know about
    •Protection and planning to prevent and/or mitigate a breach
  • Transforming Data Protection with HPE: A Unified Backup and Recovery Recorded: Jun 16 2016 57 mins
    Julita Kussmaul, Mike Whalen
    Under pressure from demanding applications, increased virtualization and a proliferation of mobile devices, IT organizations are looking for a highly-available, resilient and performant data protection environment that ensures business resiliency and efficiency. However, sourcing products from multiple vendors is costly and can create management complexity that will deter you from deriving maximum value from your infrastructure. Instead, consider a single stack, integrated software and hardware backup solution.

    Join HPE data protection experts to learn why more organizations are moving away from fragmented point based solutions to HPE’s unified data protection solutions, and how HPE Data Protector, through native integrations with HPE StoreOnce Systems, HPE 3PAR StoreServ, and HPE StoreEver (Tape) offerings, can provide you with advanced capabilities that accelerate the backup process in a cost-efficient, scalable way.

  • New Rules for Recovery: Setting Expectations for Today's Continuity Platforms Recorded: May 4 2016 47 mins
    Jim Whalen, Taneja Group; Dave LeClair, Unitrends
    Traditionally, when people talk about data protection, they’re talking about some form of backup. However, if those backups effectively end up in a “write-only memory”, they’re not much good. So really, the bottom line is recovery is what people are most concerned about when they talk about data protection. With the degree to which today’s technologies have been refined and the plethora of data protection platforms available, users should maintain a baseline set of simple expectations to be met no matter who or what they choose for the job.

  • Cloud NAS: File Storage with Unlimited Scale, Built-in Protection, Accessible An Recorded: Nov 17 2015 47 mins
    Fred Pinkett, Senior Director of Product Marketing
    File storage is an ever growing costly, complex problem. Files sprawl is out of control forcing organizations to build storage environments with file servers or NAS, backup servers and media, disaster recovery sites, WAN optimization, replication, remote storage, and mobile solutions. Adding insult to injury, these solutions run out of capacity and need expensive upgrades and painful migrations.

    Cloud NAS does away with all of this by providing local NAS controllers which cache active files from a cloud based file system. This maintains the same user experience and performance, adds collaboration and mobile access, while securely eliminating separate backup, DR and remote data access solutions. Learn how cloud enables file storage with unlimited scale that saves company’s 40-60% of their storage costs and eliminates refreshes and migrations forever.
