Aprilis is set to present its holographic data storage system at the annual Venture Market East conference next week in Boston.
Aprilis, which said it is developing a commercially viable holographic data storage system, is one of 28 companies chosen to present at the annual event sponsored by Red Herring magazine.
"Holographic data storage will become the technology of choice for near-line archiving and libraries of data for medical, financial, telecommunications, and general business applications, among others," said Aprilis Vice President of Business Development Glenn Horner.
He explained that when organizations need to free up hard disk space they usually transfer data to tape drives, making it difficult to access that information quickly. Holographic data storage systems provide a convenient place to store data with the advantage of providing easy access to as much data as the organization needs.
"The ability of many organizations to compete will depend increasingly on their ability to warehouse and access large volumes of data easily and quickly, and our holographic technology provides an economical and reliable general solution," Horner said.
The patented Aprilis technology -- which it said allows a five-inch disk to hold more than 100 gigabytes of data -- forms the basis of the holographic data storage system that the company is now developing.
Aprilis will present on Tuesday, Sept. 25, at the Fairmont Copley Plaza, and demonstrate its technology throughout the two-day event.
