    But will it improve the reliability? Think about RAID rebuild times. It would take over a week, maybe even 2.

    Haha, I think you've got to be a certain age to get that reference! I have a guilty secret that this was probably my second CD I ever bought, and probably an even guiltier secret with Vanilla Ice being the 1st - and yes I did the dance routines, but didn't go as far as the baggy trousers! Ah, good times - style! ;-)

    Pretty nice but I still believe the next step will be replacing hdds with ssds completely. Although that will take a lot of time. 15tb on a single hdd is insane though.

    I remember the days when a 20Mb HD was £4000. Remember the ads in Amiga Shopper magazine!

    I remember hearing that an 80mb drive being over $1000 bucks in the 1980s which would have been used for some kind of server.

    I read all about these a while back.. seems like a pretty cool new technology that could push density up very high on a single drive. Cool cool :)
