Digital technology is taking over the world, and scientists are hard at work finding better ways to store data, lots of it and for long periods of time. 
 
Scientists are exploring new materials for data storage as well as new methods for printing data on their chosen medium.
 
Here are a few of the emerging storage technologies to be explained.

1. 5D Disc - Eternal 5D Data Storage could record the History of Humankind: 
Scientists at the University of Southampton have made a major step forward in the development of digital data storage that is capable of surviving for billions of years.
Using nanostructured glass, scientists from the University’s Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) have developed the recording and retrieval processes of five dimensional (5D) digital data by femtosecond laser writing.
 
2.IBM Stores Data on a Single Atom. A Credit Card-sized Device can store 35 Million Songs: 
IBM has created the world’s smallest magnet using a single atom – and stored one bit of data on it. 
Currently, hard disk drives use about 100,000 atoms to store a single bit. 
 
The ability to read and write one bit on one atom creates new possibilities for developing significantly smaller and denser storage devices, that could someday, enable storing the entire iTunes library of 35 million songs on a device the size of a credit card.
 
3.World's First Light-based Memory Chip to store data permanently:
The world’s first entirely light-based memory chip to store data permanently has been developed by material scientists at Oxford University.
 
The device makes use of materials used in CDs and DVDs, and it could help dramatically improve the speed of modern computing.

  • LocationInside some convoluted formula I don't actually understand.

Not to be a downer, but 5D data storage doesn't exist. It's not actually five dimensional, the glass discs just registers the X,Y, and Z axis on top of the normal bumps found on hard drive platters. Pop science = ignorance. I overheard a conversation the other day from two people talking about how "higher dimensions" prove the afterlife. They probably don't even know what dimensions are in the first place.

 

Another example of the ridiculousness of tabloid science.

What happen to holographic storage or crystal storage device replacing computer hard-drive?

They require a lot more testing and research. Just because we managed to store information on crystals doesn't mean you're going to find data crystals at Walmart next fiscal year. What works in the laboratory may not work in the real world (see: most AI accomplishments, especially before 2010). I remember one news story a while back about a liquid hard drive, but little came of that.

Solid State Drives becoming cheap enough to replace Hard Disk Drives as the standard is the main revolution going on in the data storage world right now, and by itself should bring about a lot of rapid growth during the 2020s. I'm guessing that petabyte consumer SSDs will become a thing at some point during the '20s, and should make certain data storage problems (like for genome sequencing and such) much easier to handle. As for other new kinds of data storage technology, I tend to tune out news about them as vaporware. There's no real way of telling when or if they're coming. Though it's possible that things like AI and quantum computers will eventually speed up the creation and introduction of such products many times over, and that I'm being too much of a linear thinker here.

I just need something small enough not to weigh down a paper plane.
