[physorg] - GE announces 500 GB holographic disc writer

post #1 of 54

Quote:
GE's technology research group has announced the development of an optical disc writer capable of writing 500 GB of data onto a disc the same physical size as a DVD, at roughly the same speed as Blue Ray technology. This comes two years after announcing the holographic technology that was used to first imprint the discs with 25 times as much data as a Blue Ray Disc can hold.

Swing!! still not as good at SSD, I'm sure they'll start to get rid of disks in favor for High Capacity flash drives...

Seriously? The days with the disk's are over! You buy them, they get scratched...... and there's nothing left. Put them on pen drives, or download them for 100% reliablity and easy backup, the legal way of course.

Think beyond consumer usage.

At my place of work this is just what we need, as we keep permanent archives and have had issues with optical disk longevity in the past. This is a big thing for businesses and archivists.

Take care of them and that doesn't happen. I trust optical storage far more than flash drives, external HDDs or the cloud.

Yup. This would be great for making a second line of defense against data loss. (after backing up to a a spare HDD / tapes) If they can get these cheap enough they would make a great long term storage medium.


This sounds promising:

GE also points out that because the new writer uses the same wavelength as Blue Ray, its conceivable drives could be made for the new technology that would be backwards compatible, minimizing risk for both developers and end users. The company is expected to begin building arrangements with interested parties to license the new technology in just the new few months, so actual products appearing on the market can’t be too far off.

BluRay. If you scratch one, you're doing it very wrong.
