IBM creates a record of storing 330TB data in a tiny magnetic tape

Have you faced the problem of low storage capacity on your devices well not anymore? IBM is back with its new breakthrough which has managed to get an aerial density of 201 Gb per square inch of a sputtered magnetic tape. This density is 20 times more than the density used for any commercial purposes right now.

This breakthrough can really help a lot and bring a vast change, imagine your smartphone with such a power to store anything you want without worrying about the memory shortage. Working on this project several years IBM has gained success in collaboration with sony storage media.

With its efforts, IBM has managed to bump the target from 6.67 Gb sqr/inch to 201 Gb sqr/ inch.

With this storage power, we can expect to store near about 300 thousand million books in just a single cartridge. Also, the storage capacity will be near about 330 Tb, which is kind of a big deal.

As cloud has become the main form of backup storage. This type of technology will work as a cold storage type of solutions; this could also lead to less storage cost in near future.
