Data Storage

While high speed processors may enable high performance applications to achieve high throughput, disk data transfer rates, speed, and capacity are also critical for the overall performance of an application because slow RAM and slow disks have an impact on application performance. Write a three to four (3-4) page paper in which you: Realize business and organizational data storage and fast access times are much more important than they have ever been. Compare and contrast magnetic tapes, magnetic disks, optical discs, Flash RAM, and solid-state drives (SSD) in terms of: Speed Volatility Access methods Portability Cost Capacity Describe a situation in which you would select each of the above media. Describe a situation in which you would use Static RAM (Random Access Memory) (SRAM) and Dynamic RAM (DRAM), and Synchronous DRAM (SDRAM) and emphasize access times, fabrication technology, data transfer rates, and capacity. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.
