Hitachi Maxell demo a 50 Terabyte tape

Pairing perpendicular magnetic recording

| Storage News | Posted: May 25, 2010 10:10 am

Hitachi Maxell has harnessed perpendicular magnetic recording technology to design an LTO-class tape with a super sized 50TB of capacity. A demo was constructed by Hitachi together with the Tokyo Institute of Technology to show it fully functional.

 

It's a highly impressive achievement given that the raw capacity of the highest-capacity LTO tape roadmapped to date is 12.8TB.

Whilst it's very unlikely it will be mass marketed with identical principles to how Hitachi achieved 50TB here, it's a sign of what is possible when partnering certain technologies together and using carefully selected materials and methods to push the boundaries significantly.
