Unlimited Hard drive capacity
#1
Hey everyone,

I am working on a really neet project. The project is basically the development of a hard drive or "box" with unlimited data storage. Working with the current structure of the hardrive, i figure with an ION cloud you could create infinite storage.

there overall Hypothesis is simple:

I believe it is possible to store unlimited amounts of data in an ION cloud.

Question:
How?

Well with the above said, and my poor Hypothesis. I know it is possible, i just need to find an appropriate manner in doing it without destroying the computer i install the hardware into and of course reducing the EMF out burst.

Anyway, if there is anyone reading this that might have knowledge in the electric magnetic field, let me know, i need a bit of assistance with this.

Well I don't know 1 thing about ION clouds except that it sounds cool, but the "Unlimited Hard Drive Capacity" has been attempted before, now here is a fact: Microsoft's servers there running 10 exabytes! Read it in some tech mag I get

Any way 1TB = 0.00000095 exabytes

Now that in todays stranded is UNLIMITED :-D

What magazine?

Also, how do you "know" it's possible nextgi? Could you explain why?

Can you find the article or something cause I find that much space hard to believe Toungue

The reason i say it is possible is simply based on how a harddrive is currently configured. The only issue i see would be actually labiling the information and indexing it for speed.

Like a video tape, the magnetic tape holds the information, in this case it would be the magnetic cloud.

This sounds pretty good, but also VERY VERY EXPENSIVE at the same time

With our current understanding of the laws of physics it is impossible to have an infinite amount of storage, because an infinite amount of storage would require and infinite amount of space. Even if you were to store all of your data as photons you would still need to provide an infinitely large storage media to contain the photons so that the information that they contained could be read back later. Information has to be transcribed in such a way that it can be read back later, and I doubt that an ion cloud would be conducive to this idiom of storage. Since an ion is nothing more than a charge particle we can assume that it takes up space and therefore is subject to the currently understood laws of the universe, the next issue is with data retrieval I can think on no practical way to keep track of the potentially billions of atoms that would be needed for even today's current level of storage (assume that 1 atom = 1 bit, a 500gig HDD would require ~400,008,417,280,000 charge atoms.) then assuming that those technical issues could be overcome there is still the small issue of bit error rate, even in today's hard drive with relatively stable magnetic fields (thanks to the ionosphere) require a combination of hardware and software (S.M.A.R.T) to find and either correct of ignore bad sectors, while in an ion cloud billions of oppositely charge particles are whizzing around I think the bit error rate would be massively higher.

Yes this would provide for about 500 gigs of storage in an area smaller than a period (there are about 7.5 trillion atoms of carbon in a period, that is assuming 1 atom thick. However the technical limitations would prevent this type os storage from being seen for quite a long time I would assume.

Currently the largest SAN is owned by JPMorganChase with a storage capacity of 14 Petabytes. http://www.byteandswitch.com/document.asp?doc_id=134355&page_number=2

CERN generates around 1,000 megabytes of data a second or around 15 Petabytes of data a year. I would say that magnetic based storage has some more maturity room left, however you can't deny that we are approaching the limit of magnetic storage's resolution the point at which the areas of magnetic infulence are so small that they effected by the earths own magnetic fields and variances.

Ohh I found that mag, by some act of god :-D

"If Microsoft added up all of there servers, and workstations around the world they would have 10 Exabytes of Hard Disk Space"

If they ADDED UP I thought you meant they actually had 10 Exabyte hard drives Wink

Anyway what firefox is saying makes sense to me, even though I am no science geek Toungue. You would need a way of organizing them....

Not going to happen. Neat idea, but you're in way over your head.

Thanks for the support jerk. Anyway, I'm gonna keep making attempts at it til i get it because it will be the closest anyone has every gotten. That is of course i actually get there, which i feel i may, maybe not unlimited but a lot larger then the current state.
