Sony has created a tape volume data 185 TB





Hard to imagine that in the era of solid-state drives (HDDs though, it should be noted, also remain very popular) on store shelves and in our homes back tapes for recording information and equipment to work with them. However, the Japanese company Sony believes that the format of tapes was ruthlessly and, more importantly, it is unfair and untimely buried.

The company has developed a new technology that allows you to record to tape a lot more information than you would most modern hard drives and SSDs.


By optimizing the procedure argon ion bombardment to produce a magnetic tape of the tape, the company switched to nanolevel and thereby created a carrier film, which is 74 times as dense as any on the market drives. With a volume of 185 TB on a single reel tape drives makes it worth 5 and 6 TB (maximum amount currently available on the market) blush modestly aside.

Of course, this technology will not appear in the market and in your PC, but the achievement of Sony definitely can help market supercomputers and Internet servers, most of which often suffers from a lack of space to expand their databases.
