Holographics Technology: The End of Tape-Based Storage?

E-mail Print PDF

Akonia Holographics claims a world record in data storage density-- 1.35 terabits per square-inch with the use of a state-of-the-art holographic drive architecture and a photopolymer media.

Holographic storage According to the company holographic storage is more robust than tape storage, while featuring the benefits of random access storage. It ships as removable optical media, meaning it is as easy and familiar to use as DVDs, with a small footprint, low costs and low energy consumption.

Holographic storage involves the transfer of millions of bits in parallel to enable 10X faster transfer rates and vast storage density-- one holographic disc stores more data than 54 Blu-ray discs, Akonia says.

Additionally production costs are fairly low, since discs are plastic and do not feature multiple layers.

"I bleed Microsoft-— have for 34 years and I always will," Steve Ballmer writes in the letter announcing his retirement from the Microsoft board, all of 6 months after the appointment of Satya Nadella as company CEO.

Ballmer Clippers"Given my confidence and the multitude of new commitments I am taking on now, I think it would be impractical for me to continue to serve on the board, and it is best for me to move off," the former CEO continues. What commitments has Ballmer taken on, you might ask? These include teaching and civic engagements, but mainly he will be busy with his latest purchase, the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team.

The National Basketball Association approved the $2 billion acquisition earlier this month, news announced in the shape of a boisterous on-stage address to the press and fans, Ballmer-style.
