In 1956 the world saw its first hard drive, it weighed over a ton and only held 5 Megabytes (MB) of data. Today a typical user has at least 1 terabyte or more in their computer, a terabyte is 1,048,576 MB’s and the hard drives fit in the palm of your hand instead of needing a forklift to move it around.
That’s for the average user though, scientists are pushing the boundaries with where and how they can store data, like using living matter or artificial DNA but this little gem mentioned in the article here has the most potential of actually coming into the market. It can not only store 360 TB on it but it can also do this for 13.8 billion years, even at very high temperatures 350F(176C). Our current hard drives without electricity flowing them will lose about 1% of their data a year. Optical discs can range from 25-200 years depending on the type and all of them also depend on the condition. I’m also fairly certain none of them could withstand the high temperatures…
Thank you for reading our blog about Data Storage from Mr. Tutor-Tech, we provide Website Design in Milton, Ontario located just outside the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) close to Mississauga, Brampton, Oakville, Burlington. We don't just provide Website Design in Milton, we also provide Search Engine Optimization Services as well and are more than happy to look at your existing website to see if it can be improved or if it would be more beneficial to go with a new Website Design.
Our blogs revolve around technology and the future of technology as its rapidly changing and will continue to dominate our lives. We did try providing classroom type tutorial services in technology but have recently shifted our focus to Website Design and Search Engine Optimization instead, the classroom is now closed. Please feel free to visit our tutorial section though if you'd like to learn more about computers or technology, the course material we created is now available for free!
We have only the basics of Website Design available there, as there is a lot to know in this department we felt a basic understanding would help you in understanding what happens and how it happens but unless you work in the field you are much better off leaving this type of work to the experts, especially if you'd like to see the best results from a Website Design. Please feel free to Contact Mr.Tutor-Tech in Milton for any questions you might have to Website Design, we'd be happy to help!
