nano-storage

Nano-storage is a nanotechnology approach to storage that seeks to radically increase storage capacities through a variety of technologies, and, ultimately, to replace current storage media with extremely high-density media and devices. Nano-storage applications currently in development use a variety of methods, including optical technologies and holographic storage. IBM's Millipede project has produced a prototype nano-storage device that writes and reads data as a series of miniscule pits in a plastic film.
