Fujitsu Computer Products of America announced today that they have made a major breakthrough in hard disk drive technology. This break through could lead to future 2.5” notebook hard drives with a staggering 12 TB of storage space.

Fujitsu accomplished this by creating ideally “ordered” alumina nanohole patters for isolated bit-by-bit recording on a large disk area. This process combined with perpendicular magnetic recording processes currently being used allows for huge increases in data capacity.

If a tiny 2.5” laptop hard drive has the potential to hold over 1TB of data, I can only wonder at the capacity a normal desk top hard drive would have. Currently the highest capacity notebook drives top out at 200GB, where as desk top drives hit 1TB. It wouldn’t be to surprising to see 2.5” desktop drives with 2 of 3 Tb of storage using this technology. Via Fujitsu
