Ideal for use in food, manufacturing, textile and pharmaceutical industries, the system increases storage density by more than 20% over drive-in racking.
the limitations of this phenomenon, known as superparamagnetism, have been overcome with the invention of Ultra-high Storage Density, Self-assembled, Magnetic Media, which for the first time, allows data storage densities approaching and exceeding 1 TB/[in.
Washington, July 30 (ANI): An international team of scientists has tapped graphene, which is being hailed as the new "wonder material," to help overcome issues associated with increasing the storage density and speed of electronic memory devices.
Portable racks allow users to maximize storage density, as with drive-in or flow racks, but also maximize selectivity, as with traditional selective pallet racks.
By the nature of their portability, such racks are said to allow the user to maximize storage density (like a drive-in or flow rack), or to maximize selectivity (like traditional selective pallet racks), or anything in between, all with the same rack, according to the company.
This delivers storage density that is five times that of traditional systems and enables companies to host high-bandwidth applications and data, such as digital media streaming, digital surveillance and high-performance computing (HPC) on a single platform at reportedly half the cost of alternative solutions.
According to Sun Microsystems, the X4500 combines a four-way server, powered by Opteron processors from AMD, high data throughput and the highest storage density available in a server.
The ADIC Scalar 100 is a midrange library that offers the industry's leading combination of storage density, trouble-free scalability, and advanced storage networking support.
In addition to offering advanced features such as massive storage density (there is no longer a terabyte limit), support for most SCSI and Fibre Channel tape libraries, and improved user interface to manage drives, tapes, and cleaning tapes, it now protects Power Mac G4 and G5 computers running Mac OS X Panther and backs up Apple's Xserve RATDs (Redundant Array of Independent Disks).
The data storage density of devices based on traditional optical recording is limited by their physical ability to write data marks on a recording material of one wavelength.
At that point, researchers will again confront the need for new technology to increase storage density, and Seagate plans to turn to a technique called heat-assisted magnetic recording.
