EPFL Scientists Built Single-atom Magnet: The most Stable to-date

Over the past 10 years, Miniature Storage techniques have taken center stage, thanks to the scientists who have been working in the field for years. These techniques are results of efforts to make computing technology as smaller as possible. One of the biggest impediments to developing practical smaller computing devices is preserving information. For smaller computing devices, storage necessarily has to be atom size. Which further requires to build single-atom magnets. “But a single magnetic atom is so sensitive, that its magnetic orientation remains stable only for a fraction of seconds.” which means it would not be able to retain the

Are SSDs Going to Stay Longer?

This is the question that gets asked often, and it’s very heated topic to boot. There are plenty of folks in the industry who says it’s going to stay and plenty of others who thinks it’s on the way out.  Google Infrastructure VP, Eric Brewer recently argued: “current disks are designed for enterprise service, not for their current dominant use as a cloud-based storage.” Brewer explanation about his claim made a lot of sense. I’ll quickly summarize and add some background information. “SSD” is the short form of Solid State Drive. SSD technology primarily uses electronic interfaces that are compatible

Apple Says No QuickTime Update for Windows- How to Uninstall

Homeland Security recently issued an alert for Windows users urging them to uninstall and delete QuickTime after cyber security firm Trend Micro reported two vulnerabilities in the program. Apple confirmed to The Wall Street Journal that they would no longer be providing QuickTime support or updates for Windows users. Adobe’s Madison Murphy addressed the issue in a recent blog post: “Adobe has worked extensively on removing dependencies on QuickTime in its professional video, audio and digital imaging applications”. She also pointed out, “Unfortunately, there are some codecs which remain dependent on QuickTime being installed on Windows, most notably Apple ProRes. We know how

Can a Piece of Glass Save Data?

Yes. Fiction becomes reality!!  What seemed impossible in real life and as shown only in Superman movies has become a reality. A team of researchers hailing from Southampton have made it possible. They have developed working models of 5D  glass technology that will allow people to store huge amount of data in a tiny piece of glass. Watch the video of Peter Kazansky : Nanostructures in glass will store data for billions of years Professor Peter Kazansky, from the Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC), says: “It is thrilling to think that we have created the technology to preserve documents and information and store it

History of Storage from Cave Paintings to Electrons (Infographic)

It started as paintings inside caves, then Papyrus for early documenting and today we are looking for DNA as storage solutions. As our hunger for storage soars, so is technologies have evolved from ages. I`ve put together a brief timeline of how storage techniques have evolved. Think of it as a highlight reel from the past. And if you are more of  a visual reader then you`ll love this infographic

What If You Could Store Data In Plant?

When it comes to storing data, sometimes old school hard drives can be so annoying, especially when it comes to storing a huge chunk of data (for example storing entire music collection), those old school hard drives appear to be incompatible and tiny. I was also annoyed by the amount of disk space on my computer. It made me wonder “Will we ever be able to invent technologies that can store entire World data present today into a single disk or may be a couple of disks?” It seems I was not the only one who came across with such

Smartphone Users Study Reveals: Why We Often Run Out of Memory

Smartphones have evolved from just being a calling device to more like a multimedia device. What most people look for in a smartphone today is a better camera, massive storage space and bigger display size. 34 Million Americans are “forced” to delete media files for saving space A recent study conducted by IPSOS in United States says more than 36 million people are obsessed with taking photos. Around 34 million are forced to delete pictures, videos and apps as they run out of space every week. And the impact is on 65 million US smartphone users every month. 4.5 Million Britain’s

How You Want to Mark (March 8, 2016) International Women’s Day? Share Your Stories

On March 8, 2016 – The World is stressing on gender equality, tweeting and sharing posts with #PledgeForParity hash tags.

Google Asks Hard Drive Manufacturers To Forget About Reliable Disks

Insane isn`t it? Here is a fact; 70% of businesses have experienced data loss due to accidental deletion, disk or system failure, viruses, fire or some other disaster. [Source: datto] Read the headline again. Does this confuse you? Well even if you consider yourself a storage expert or you`re hearing “Storage” , “Hard disks” and “Cloud” for the first time, it doesn`t make sense to risk the data safety despite whatever Google says. But that`s not what Google is trying to suggest, let`s hear it from Eric Brewer, Google` s infrastructure VP. Brewer presented a surprising white paper at 2016 USENIX
