New Data Storing Technology Last 100,000 Years

2 December 2009

Ever wondered how long do you think your storage device will last? Well with our current technology, a normal hard disk should last 10 to 20 years but there’s good news^^ Hitachi has developed a data storing technology which enables their recording medium to last for 100,000 years!

Nikkan Kogyou Shimbun states that Hitachi has developed this new technology by using recording data using precision laser etching on fuzed silica. However, the the bad news is 3-centimeter square block of silica can only write about 4.8kilobytes of data.

OMG that’s very little^^;; I guess there’s always a price to pay if you want technology to last xD
I wonder who will live so long to use this storage device… hahas
