The article discusses the Tapestry 300R drive and other storage devices which make use of holographic storage technology developed by InPhase Technologies. The use of holography for high-capacity optical storage came from Bell Labs. With roots from Bell Labs, InPhase Technologies spent six years developing holographic storage, resulting with the Tapestry 300R in 2007 and a media design for a 300 gigabyte (GB) disk. The company will also roll out with 800GB and 1.6 terrabyte versions every 18 to 24 months. InPhase investor Hitachi Maxell is the first media manufacturer that will make the disk cartridges. An original equipment manufacturer (OEM) deal with German storage vendor DSM has also been announced.
