Outside the CES limelight was the Storage Visions Conference


Visionary Award for Consumer Storage Product

In all of the hyperbole and hoopla fueling the social buzz of the 2012 International CES there was one newsworthy story that evaded all but the most avid journalists: the 2012 Storage Visions Conference, billed as a partner program to CES, and its annual awards presentation at the Riviera Hotel Convention Center. Of the seven product categories in the competition, the subject of this writing is the Visionary Award for Consumer Storage Product defined as: advanced development of digital storage devices and media used in electronic consumer systems. Winning the distinction of the 2012 Visionary Award for Consumer Storage Product category was none other than Millenniata, for their M-Disc. Also named as finalists in this year's award were Other World Computing's Mercury Aura Pro Express 6GB SSD and OCZ Technology's RevoDrive Hybrid PCI Express. “We are pleased to be recognized with this award. It recognizes the need of permanent storage across many different industries and applications."said Scott Shumway, Millenniata CEO. The M-Disc will not degrade over time and is usable on a daily basis. It is the perfect storage solution for music, photos, video, genealogical records, business records, data loss prevention, permanent file backup, medical imaging, government usage, and for archival purposes. The M-Disc is the first backward compatible non-dye based DVD technology constructed of inorganic materials that are known to last centuries. M-Disc compatible drives (referred to as M-Ready) are high quality optical drives specifically designed to laser-engrave digital information onto the M-Disc. This combination allows information to be written once and read over time and offers the best permanent data storage solution in the industry. The M-Disc holds 4.7GB with higher capacities in development.
