Technology of tomorrow, today? One terabyte, one centimeter holographic data storage cube in the works
Tucked behind a protected website that is closed to the general public, Access Optical Networks (AON) has developed an exciting new way to utilize holographic technology and store a terabyte of data in a one centimeter cube.
Holographic storage systems aren’t exactly new. They have been around for years, but have been met by various roadblocks due to rising costs and an unconvincing advantage over more conventional means of data storage. While the technology is certainly “cool”, the idea of paying more money for moderately better or similar technology is not. But according to a recent article inLaser Focus World, the New Jersey-based AON may be on the verge of rectifying that.
