InPhase to develop 500GB+ holographic media

Posted on Tuesday, March 28 2006 @ 7:30 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
InPhase says it reached another milestone in the development of its holographic storage media by doubling the capacity to 515 Gbit per square inch which should enable the company to produce DVD-sized disks with a capacity of well above 500GB.
With high definition audio and video around the corner, the capacity of Blu-ray and HD-DVD media isn't quite as stunning as the specifications may suggest. 50 GB Blu-ray disks - which can store about two HD movies - is simply just good enough, especially if we consider the fact that these disks aren't available yet. Organizations that need to store enormous amounts of data are likely to look elsewhere: While tape drives are likely remain the dominant solution for backing up data, holographic drives could soon become an option when data not only needs to be stored, but also instantly accessed.
