Dark storage

Dark storage:
Storage that isn't populated by data, be it allocated or unallocated. Coined by storage management startup, MonoSphere, Redwood City, CA, the term is clearly an allusion to the telecommunication world's dark fiber--fiber optic cabling that doesn't have any data traveling over it.
