SlideshowHow Cloud Storage Became Cool

If retrieval time is not an issue... I wonder how various proposals to archive data on DNA will turn out. Apparently, all the world's data could be stored in a relatively modest amount of space with DNA. The data retrieval process isn't exactly quick, but it could be easily replicated for backup safety.

A few hundred petabytes of data written on a few grams of DNA sounds like cool idea....

Re: Glacier @danielcawrey: We talked about that specifically, and also about deep, cold storage for certain data.

Glacier This makes me think of Amazon Glacier, the storage solution that can hold lots of data for cheap. The only drawback is the retrieval time. I think it takes several hours to do a request.
