4TB Drives

Post Magazine - 4TB Drives:
We've all watched over the years as storage and memory capacities have continued to grow in conjunction with Moore's law. It seems true that Intel and other manufacturers have figured out how to overcome barrier after physical barrier to double the number of transistors on a chip (or double storage density on a platter) and continue to overwhelm the industry with more space, cores and storage than we know what to do with! (I myself date back to the age of full length, full height, 25pin SCSI devices that didn't quite get to 1GB. I also got to repair more than a few of those washing machine sized "tubs" that you would lower spindles into with a handle and a few reel to reel tape devices as well.)
