Microsoft has developed a completely new data carrier, which will last 1,000 years

Companies just took care of it that the character of Superman has been stored for a long time, and all of the film by placing it on a new type of media.Data carrier that will last up to 1,000 years? Microsoft and Warner Bros. They undertook to cooperate to prove that this is possible. In order to put this movie Superman 1978 przeźroczu size quartz glass coasters, and then they were able to recover from it, all in the context of Microsoft’s Project Silica. New medium has been designed to have survived centuries without doing nothing of the conditions that will destroy magnetic media.Transparency quartz glass measuring 75 x 75 mm, a thickness of 2 mm and securely stores 75.6 GB of data. Although glass is associated with something soft, further tests have shown that it is completely different – carrier assembly tried to drown put in the microwave rozmagnesowywał, cooking in water, scrubbed with steel wool and roasted at 260 ℃. To the surprise of the same test, in all these cases, the data remained intact and could be read clearly.This shows that data warehouses full of such media would be able to survive the many natural disasters, and not only as fires, floods, earthquakes, overload, power outages or magnetic interference. Moreover, these stores also would not need so much energy every day, because the current cost of living falls carriers under optimal conditions, ie their proper cooling. Besides, the glass plates take up far less space, so you can cram more of them on the same surface. A thorough discussion of the process of writing data to new media video explains the following:What with all the most important, according to Microsoft they are able to survive 1000 years, or even more, while the degradation of magnetic media are in approx. 10 years and despite the ideal operating conditions. So what are we waiting with change? As always about the money, because now it is completely unprofitable financially – even for the largest companies, because as you might guess it is not a product aimed at the consumer market.According to Ant Rowstron of Microsoft Research Cambridge – we do not try to create something that you are buying a home to keep at the movies. We build carrier operating on a large scale. We want to eliminate the costly process of transferring data to a new generation of media. It has to be something that you stick figures and then put aside on the shelf for 50, 100, or 1,000 years to the time when you need it.In this context it is not surprising at all involved in the project at Warner Bros., which has nearly a century to store movies, TV shows, animation, radio shows and other data. When you save, and then gain access to the Superman of the seventies the company proved that such technology is possible and maybe for some time giants the likes of Warner Bros. They decide to take it, to keep all his achievements for posterity.
