Seagate: storage future means libraries in your pocket

HARD DRIVE giant Seagate is set to present research findings this week which mean storage capacities of 50 terabits a square inch are within the grasp of technologists. It will present its findings on March 25th at the American Physical Society conference based on R&D using heat assisted magnetic recording (HAMR).

That technique means that over 3.5 million high res photographs, 2,800 audio CDs, 1600 hours of TV programmes or the entire printed collection of the US Library of Congress can sit on 30 millimetres disks. Seagate is confident that its R&D team will be able to deliver such ultra high storage densities.
