Holographic Storage Drives
A new and exciting development in data storage has been announced by Inphase Technologies out of Longmont, Colorado.
Inphase has demonstrated the highest data density of any commercial technology by recording 515 gigbits of data per square inch. By comparison, magnetic disks, such as those used in the hard drives, can manage a storage density of about 375 gigabits per square inch.
Holographic drives use a three-dimensional image generated by lasers to store information.
InPhase will deliver the industry’s first holographic drive and media later this year. The first generation drive has a capacity of 300 gigabytes on a single disk with a 20 megabyte per second transfer rate. The first product will be followed by a family ranging from 800Gb to 1.6 terabyte (Tb) capacity.
• 50 years lifetime compared to today’s 7 years.
• 70% more storage space.
