This paper reviews the history of storage systems. The first section begins with the era of early mechanical calculators and the following four sections review historically major storage devices such as magnetic tapes, magnetic disks, optical devices, and solid-state devices. The final two sections focus on recent system technologies such as storage networking and cloud-based storage.
