yo mama replaced Yottabyte

Wonder how many years it'll take for a zetabyte harddrive to be something everyone's got...
User avatar #37 to #35 - ihatem (03/19/2013) [-]
I'd say quantum computing may bring something along or at least super silicon chips with that kind of power in maybe the next century in a half

Not too bad, I heard somewhere that we're only a few years away from having one byte per atom or something aswell
#60 to #38 - frankiethekneeman (03/19/2013) [-]
That seems really unlikely - considering a byte is eight distinct pieces of information. Besides, how would one store even one piece of information in a single atom? Ionization? Seems like an expensive process, but I'm not a physicist. It seems likely to me that the best theoretical limit on information density is a bit per atom - but that's kind of shady, too.

Using the weight of the Deskstar 7k1000.C 1TB drive (680 grams) - even if we say that only 1% of that mass is actual addressable aluminum on the platters (6.8 grams), that's still an astronomical amount of data storage - the Molar Mass of Aluminum is around 27 g/mol - meaning we're addressing about .252 moles of aluminum - or 1.5 x 10²³ atoms. That's an astrnomical amount of data. If each of those atoms represents a byte (as you suggested) , we're talking about 150 YottaBytes. Even under my suggestion of one bit per atom, we're still talking about something like 19 YottaBytes.

Of course, the drive is one TB (~10¹²), so our actual information density is 1.5 x 10¹¹ atoms / byte. or, 1.9 x 10¹⁰ atoms per bit. So no, we're nowhere near one byte per atom. The more you know, right?

Well, the 1GB HDD became common around the mid/late 1990's, and the 1TB drive is becoming common in today's machines, so by assuming that every twenty years we achieve the next tier, ignoring the physical limitations of drives, the 1ZB hard drive should start being common around 2075. I'll be 81 or 82 years old.

Obviously that math is disgustingly flawed, so take that as you will.

I was just thinking about how much stuff I could put on a 1 Zetabyte hard drive o.o
#14 - anon (03/19/2013) [-]
Dude, just imagine having a Zettabyte hard drive.
#15 to #14 - anon (03/19/2013) [-]
Or better yet, a Yottabyte.

You too, Suzy.

how to respond to this.

I can't tell if you're trolling, if you don't know computer terminology, or both.
