1.2 petabytes hard drive.

Michael Thomas, owner of Colossa Storage, claims that he invented the technology that will let him create an affordable 1.2 petabyte hard drive. He expects it to be ready in about four to five years at a cost of $750.

Apparently, mr. Thomas is the first person to solve non-contact optical spintronics which will in turn utlimately result in the creation of 3.5-inch discs with a million times the capacity of any hard drive: 1.2 petabytes of storage, to be exact.

Just to put everything into perspective guys: mega is 1,024 times kilo, giga is 1,024 times mega, tera is 1,024 times giga and peta is 1,024 times tera.

That is A LOT of hard disk space!
