One Petabyte of Data on a DVD?
 
Looks like DVDs aren't dying anytime soon. I'm guessing one petabyte (= 1,024 terabytes) would hold my entire film library and leave room for many more. ;D

Why store when you can have the perviest search history in town?

Sometimes I forget to clear it out. Then my wife wants to know why google autofills asian tentacle ass porn when she types an "a" in the search box.

I assume you call her a pervert and walk away.

I dunno. Ask my wife.

This is the type of technological advancement that will be required for the 4k consumer video market to take off in the next few years. Cool stuff.

Even so, SSD's are the future. No spinning required. They use less space, less energy, they're more quite and obviously more durable.

The DVD will be dead soon enough, even with this new format.

SSDs have a ton of value in running operating systems (ridiculous I/O speeds compared to a traditional HDD) but using them as a pure storage drive is a huge waste of resources/$$$


This new DVD burning technology would add immense value to a currently existing CHEAP storage disc

Jetmeck 06-20-2013 03:18 PM

SSDs are way too expensive and fragile as hell.

Operating system yes, main hard drive, big mistake.

Long way to go before they are common.

4k will need broadcast tv and major internet infrastructure developments before

it is worth a look.

4k broadcast is YEARS away, maybe never possible without some heavy duty compression. From a consumer purchasing standpoint though, these super petabyte DVDs would provide enough space for 4k movies which can easily run 100GBs+


Right now the only way to watch 4k video is off a hard-drive. Blu-Ray own large enough, this tech may be a solution

Correct but people want on demand tv...........Sony's lame attempt including a computer with their overpriced 4k sets was their answer.

Broadcast and internet 4k likely will never happen.

Basically you need 80 inch and up sets to actually see a difference and that is setting 5-6 feet away.

Basically if you have one of these you have an upconverting set........at best it is doubling the info it receives. NOT GOOD.

How many times do you watch that dvd or blu ray you own ?>

I think this new tech is a great advancement but not the answer.

06-20-2013 03:42 PM

Agreed. 4k tech is in its infancy right now and it's a ways away from being practical. This new tech isn't an answer for anything in particular imo, but could prove to be a great advancement of current storage technology.

wow, it would be very very difficult to use all that space!!!

We run a multi-terabyte SSD array for some very performance critical data. While they are expensive (about double the per-megabyte), they are extremely fast. 12 months in they have been *very* durable as well. Failure rates far below what our hard drives are seeing.

My laptop is a pure SSD as well (so "main hard drive"). At 500 GB it provides the storage I need, is performant, and extremely fast. A year in on this it's been just fantastic as well.

Yeah SSDs are great. They are VERY durable - they don't have moving mechanical parts like HDDs do. As far as their lifetime issues, they are overrated as well. Technology is moving so fast even people that are not tech savvy upgrade their computers within 4-5 years anyway and will buy a new SSD to go with it.

Price is still the killer (though it's getting better everyday). Your 500GB SSD costs more than many people's laptops. You must be getting some great deals on SSDs if you can get them for double the per-megabyte... You can easily find a 1TB HDD for $50, every once in awhile you can get a great deal on a 500GB SSD for ~$280. That's close to 12x per megabyte cost difference.

Need to use incognito mode. Works like a charm.....From what I heard. Never actually tried it..........

Keep in mind this is in a data-center environment, so the optical drives we're dealing with are quite a bit more pricey. So in the end the SSD's are around double.

Fragile as hell? WTF are you talking about. What the hell do you think a Pen drive is (also called USB drive, Thumb Drive). It's essentially an SSD drive. Same technology. I've dropped mine on the floor and stepped on it accidentally and it still worked fine.

I'm not saying they're not the best option today. I said they are the future. They will only get smaller and hold more storage, and they don't have to have a device that spins them to read them. Trust me, they are the future.

Why would I trust you? You stepped on your thumb drive
