NAB 2012: Holographic Storage from hVault

Looking to archive your video productions, maybe your storage needs are reaching massive amounts? It may sound sci-fi but hVault presents holographic storage as an option for archiving your video. The company is composed of archival experts and the new venture for maintaining your content is theirfirst holographic library system. Think optical storage, but in 3D, so your flat CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays just grew into a whole lot more space for data storage.

The available systems are single drive autoloaders and multiple drive libraries, both substitutes for your tape or disk-based options. The cost of ownership is reduced via durability, and hVault touts more than 50 years of life for your stored data. The lifespan hVault found for magnetic disk or tape is somewhere between two and five years, and that would mean lots of hours replacing, managing and discarding old archived material that you thought youd finished worrying about.
