Currently, companies worldwide store and back up their data in massive cloud data warehouses, data centers, edge centers, and on tape and discs. But from energy usage to accessibility, reliability and costs, each storage system has its unique pros and cons. In this report, we’ll cover Folio Photonics’ latest release and what it could offer to people looking for new storage alternatives.
Optical multilayer enterprise disc storage solution
Folio Photonics, a company that focuses on data storage innovation, will present the first enterprise-scale optical data storage system during CES 2023. The company claims to have created a system that exceeds traditional disc storage by leveraging game-changing advancements in materials.
The new Folio Photonics storage system is a licensed technology that spun off from Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) and its National Science Foundation Center for Layered Polymeric Systems by professor Kenneth Singer.
The company explains that the system is a high-capacity optical storage solution with improved write/read capabilities. The single Folio disc has the same storage capacity as more than 100 DVDs, with a long-term roadmap to 10TB on a single disc.
“The high cost of storage is untenable with exploding data growth, cyber threats continuing to escalate, and data centers being one of the top contributors to energy and water usage and CO2 emissions,” said Steven Santamaria, CEO of Folio Photonics. “We look forward to CES and the opportunity to show how Folio Photonics has achieved a significant breakthrough in multilayer optical storage disc technology that will enable an unprecedented level of cost, security, performance and sustainability advantage.”
