Topic in Depth - Data Storage (7)

Even as home computers are being equipped with hard drives more massive than most users need, the scientific community faces challenges of inadequate data storage systems. Research experiments can produce unimaginable amounts of information, and computer scientists are working on ways to manage it.

The Storage Spectrum
Virtually every modern computer system incorporates several different storage technologies to process data efficiently. A gentle introduction to data storage is given on this site, part of Red Hat, Inc.'s Linux System Administration Primer. The topics covered include: "The Storage Spectrum," "CPU Registers," "Cache...

Colossal Storage Corporation
Colossal Storage is a company specializing in a new method of holographic data storage. While current technologies are hindered by area density, the proposed technology will expand into three dimensions and use the disk's volume to write data. Visitors will find some interesting insights into the technology and...

Beyond DVD: Holographic Storage
InPhase Technologies is exploring holographic storage; however, its goal is to create a device that could be the successor to the DVD. In this article, the potential capabilities and specifications of such a device are discussed. A working prototype has already been demonstrated, paving the way for future commercially...

Coping with the Ultrascale Tsunami of Scientific DataPDF
A short paper by the Department of Energy Office of Science describes the impending rush of data generated by future scientific applications. It outlines the obstacles that must be overcome, including data mobility, extraction and analysis, and storage hardware.

CASTOR: CERN Advanced Storage Manager
Possibly the most ambitious storage system ever created will be used to capture data from the world's most advanced particle physics facility. The European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) will begin operating its Large Hadron Collider in 2007. The system that will collect and manage data from this instrument...

NASA Satellite Data Managed by ADIC SW Soars Past 1 Petabyte
Satellites that monitor the Earth's environment have provided NASA with over a petabyte (a million gigabytes) of data. This article, from the now-defunct DStar Magazine from Tabor Communications, discusses this remarkable achievement and how the system allows constant access to all of the information.

Flash Memory
