Both Sony and Panasonic plan to work together on producing a 300 GB optical disc. They are jointly using their resources and labor in order to launch this disc in the market two years from now.
The two giant firms have made a pact to come out with something big. This will be in the form of a disc that will carry more information than previously possible. Sony and Panasonic have decided to get serious about this optical disc which will have a storage capacity of 300 GB. The deadline has been set for 2015 so there is plenty of time. The disc is meant for serious users who may want to store huge amounts of data on the special device. In other words, it is for commercial enterprises and senior level professionals. A possible clientele exists in the form of the movie industry. Another is cloud-based data centers which may also benefit from this specific technology.
Optical discs are very hardy and naturally tough. Neither dust nor liquid can harm them. Even erratic temperatures and humid conditions have little to no effects on these resilient gadgets. And while the formats may change, the selfsame discs can be employed from one version to the next. They literally work across generations. It is precisely these properties that make them the ideal storage device for tons of information from encyclopedia sets to virtually whole libraries. It all depends upon the capacity of the optical disc. Meanwhile, if you compare today’s puny versions with what lies in the future, you feel let down. They can only store 25 to 50 GB at most.
