Default Hitachi aiming for 5TB hard drive by 2010

Solid-state disks may be eating into the territory of traditional hard drives, particularly in laptops, but that doesn't mean spinning platters are on their last legs particularly not at Hitachi.

Hard drive specialist Hitachi Global Storage Technologies is continuing to push HDDs to the limit, with a strong emphasis on increasing capacity and with a clear goal in mind.

The Japan-based company has stated that it plans to have a commercial 3.5-inch hard drive on the market that can hold 5TB by 2010. It aims to achieve this with write heads that use something called current perpendicular-to-the-plane giant magnetoresistance (CPP-GMR).

from the source article:

Quote:
By 2010, just two disks will suffice to provide the same storage capacity as the human brain..
In other words, a next-generation hard drive will be able to recall that trip to the seaside in 1976
how did they come to this conclusion? your memories you can recollect can be filled with plenty of detail, so we assume you would be recording them in more detail than 1080p currently offer; Let's double that just for an example; 3840*2160. It would take 2~3 BluRay 50gb discs to store 2-3hours of your memories.

with 10TB you can store approx 200 hours of HD memories. is that all you got?
