GridKa school of computing 2008

I have been asked to present a talk titles "The Importance of Data Storage" at this years GridKa school of computing. In particular, I have been asked to discuss issues like:

* computing and data storage: differences in the challenges.
* several examples of communities needing large amounts of data on the grid (if possible, communities having different access models).
* usage of different storage technologies (disk, tape, solid state,...).
* different tools for storing huge amounts of data.

If anyone has any pertinent ideas then I'd like to know about them, particularly when it comes to non-HEP users of Grid storage.
