Maxell focuses on holographic storage

Information storage media company Maxell has said it will launch its first holographic storage products in September 2006. The first removable drive will have a capacity of 300GB and a throughput of 160mbps.

We just had a little discussion on holographic storage in the comments on an earlier post. I have to admit, this is coming to market sooner than I expected. I thought it’d be another year or two, not next year. But it does look to be targeted as I expected, for data, backups, etc. 300GB on one disc is rather more than most consumers will need.
