100TB cartridges set to rival tapes, challenging drives, DNA for data archiving domination

When cloud storage stays the most obvious part of purchaser storage across the tech ecosystem, the little bit that requires the most capability continues to be hidden. Archiving and long phrase knowledge storage by hyperscalers and company suppliers have collected steam over the previous 10 years as far more of our life – specially above the COVID lockdown – took location online. 

Optical storage (assume DVD and Blu-ray) has been in the shadows as tape, exotic media (like silica or DNA) and tricky disk drives vie for supremacy in the hotly contested location of archiving. On the other hand, just one newcomer, Folio Photonics, aims to provide the items speedier than everybody by using a new spin on current optical technologies.
