Thought for the month

“There is nothing noble in being superior to some other man. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.” Probably W.L. Sheldon, US lecturer on ethics (1858 – 1907) rather than Ernest Hemingway.

Cold storage

The secure, error and hack free storage of data is becoming a major concern for many organisations. Data storage could be the new Eldorado for Switzerland. Swiss laws on the issue are amongst the most restrictive in the world: personal data is defined as a ‘precious good’  that can under no circumstances be handed over to governments or authorities without authorisation from a judge. The prediction is that within the next 25 years, a majority of the of assets stored in Switzerland will be digital rather than physical. The Gnomes of Zettabyte?
