Sony supports magnetic cassette tapes and has just created a device with 185 terabytes of capacity, which in musical terms means more than 60 million songs saved to listen.

This new technology has been presented at the International Magnetics Conference in Dresden (Germany).

The Japanese company notes that the new tape is capable of holding 185TB. Then, 148 gigabits per square inch. A more graphic example, each tape is equivalent to over 11,000 iPhone 5S or 16 GB Blu-ray 3700. A new tape storing 74 times more than tapes we know!

It was created by tweaking a process called sputter deposition, It involves shooting ions onto a layer of polymer film substrate.

Thus, Sony wants to offer a durable storage medium due to the huge amount of data that is expected to accumulate over the next six years. It is estimated that by 2020, it will have 40 zettabytes data, or 43,000 million TB: about 5,200 gigabytes for every person in the world!

It could, in theory, be used by anyone but has been designed specifically for organizations that need to store large amounts of data.

Sony said that it will continue to work towards getting this next-generation storage ready to sell, and developing the technology to make it even more efficient. Then, “with the aim of increasing recording densities even further.”

Technology news: We believed that the tapes were part of the past, the youth of our parents. Now, surprisingly, the cassettes will be the latest technology … again!

Interesting news, no doubt! Lovers of vintage will be happy. Their collections of tapes are now chic, maybe trend!

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
