Welcome to our May 2016 e-newsletter.

This issue of the Storage magazine e-newsletter covers a lot of ground, even by our normal exacting standards: we look at migration strategies, Flash in the data centre, cloud and much more - and that’s before we even begin to review the latest news stories. But one article really struck a chord with me as a reader, and that was the 'Making History' piece from Arkivum's Nik Stanbridge. He argues that there is a real danger of society itself suffering a kind of 'cultural memory loss' if we don't begin to prioritise the preservation of historical artefacts and data in a more structured and strategic way.

As an example he talks about the anthropology team who have used, among other things, helium balloons and 3D photography in order to record the historic site at Petra in Jordan. The challenge, Tim argues, is not just in how to capture this information, but how to preserve it in such a way that it will remain available for scholars and the rest of us into the future: "I believe the race is well and truly on now for memory organisations to determine how they can preserve our heritage. Digitisation and digital preservation are just as much about posterity as they are online accessibility and democratisation of knowledge." Fascinating stuff, I hope you'll agree.
