Hosted Cloud Services

On October 1, 1982 Sony changed the way we listened to music and stored our data with the release of the Compact Disc (CD). First released in Japan and six months later here in the United States. It was not cheap – coming in around $1000 and supplies were limited.

The main appeal the CD had over vinyl albums was the no-wear endurance and noise free sound.

CD sales are still going strong today, although download and streaming music have put a dent in sales.

It is hard to say what the next format will be. Some think cloud services may play a critical role in the way the next generation stores music and data. Many companies are exploring this option now.

What are your ideas on the topic?
