Introducing the view of SNIA Japan Cold Storage Technical Working Group on "Cold Storage"

Nowadays, huge amount of data is being generated everyday regardless of our awareness. Since nobody knows how much value the data would have in the future, we are obliged to retain more and more data, a.k.a. "cold data" at a certain cost.

Fortunately, we have quite a few options, however, there is apparently no standard yardstick to make our decision. Therefore, we have been discussing this topic for many months. Today, I'd like to introduce our current view on the cold storage with a bit of taxonomy by various characteristics of such storage devices.
