Information storage is the process of modifying a memory component or device to retain digital or analog computer data for some interval of time. Coding and Signal processing have been key components of data storage systems in the past (e.g. disk drives, tape recording, DVD players). Coding and signal processing methods in data storage are unique in the sense that they need to be tailor-made to address issues specific to each storage system.
