HI-TECH NEWS with #data storage hashtag

As usual in the end of each month we post a list of the most noticeable technology company acquisitions.
The first day of March was rich in M&As. The first name of the company is those who acquired and the second one is who was acquired correspondingly. Let’s start with e-Zest Solutions.

A new study has shown that people selling on their old used hard drives or SSDs aren't taking the proper precautions to fully wipe their data from them, with the obvious danger that the buyer may be able to access their personal information – or indeed corporate data in some cases.

Take everything you know about data storage and set it aside, because a breakthrough from a research team at the University of Southampton’s Optoelectronics Research Center (ORC) could change everything. The scientists have developed a totally new type of data storage, in the form of glass discs close to the size of a quarter. Data is encoded into tiny nanostructures embedded within the glass, and the team believes their invention could be used to store data for up to 13.8 billion years.
