HAMR technology HDD announced by Fujitsu

Fujitsu announced it had developed a multi-layer optical element for a new storage technology known as heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR).

 

Theoretically, HAMR allows for storage of up to 50 terabits per square inch, an unthinkable level by today's standards, much more than 1 terabit per square inch level of today's perpendicular drives.

Hell, I figure that storing 4.3 GB+/- on a DVD is risky business. I can't imagine storing 50 terabits of important data on one disc. (Not even a hard drive.)

And if we are talking about harddrives here, heck how do you back that sucker up... (in our corporate world we use Robotic tape drives units... heck it would take you a week to do one backup...)
