When I bought my first computer in the 90s, it had a 40 MEGAbyte hard drive and a whopping four MB of RAM. I later updated that to eight MB, which cost me about $800. Today, many of us are walking around with phones that with a capacity of 128 GB. And who remembers the iPod Classic with its 160 GB hard drive, capable of holding about 30,000 songs?
Phht. That’s nothing.
Nimbus Data just revealed its new ExaDrive DC100, a flash drive that packs 100 TERABYTES into a standard 3.5-inch form factor.
Put in a way music fans can understand, the DC100 can store up to 20 million songs, which is approximately half the number Spotify and the other streaming music services have in their library.
That also translates to 20,000 movies. On a desktop computer. On a single drive.
