Welcome to the home of the DISK/TREND Reports, the most widely used market studies on the worldwide disk drive industry from 1977 through 1999. In late 1999, DISK/TREND phased out its market research programs, but the 1999 reports, as well as older editions, are still available from Jim Porter. The 1999 Data Storage Forum, co-sponsored for 18 years with Freeman Associates, was the last in the series offered by the original partners.
This site contains summaries and ordering information for 1999 DISK/TREND reports, plus extensive information on the data storage industry, including links to companies, government agencies, educational institutions and other organizations concerned with the disk drive industry.
