atomic storage

The atomic storage partially makes fools of any current hard drive

A group of researchers from the University of Delft has developed a storage device at the atomic scale in which is possible to store 500 Tbit per square inch, a staggering figure that outstrips any current storage system.

This “hard atomic” could store all the books written by humans in the size of a postage stamp, and although there is still work ahead, it points to a future in which such systems could definitely outrun technologies current storage, although there is still a major drawback: the speed of reading and writing.
