DataSlide is focused on revolutionizing the storage industry.
Bringing together innovation, using standards based mature manufacturing process
technologies from LCD, HDD, and semiconductors, the company is developing ultra
low power green storage drives with unmatched performance, capacity,
reliability, and significant power reduction over traditional disk drive
technologies. DataSlide has a seasoned management team from companies like
Seagate, Connor, Quantum, Maxtor and HP. DataSlide is a privately held company
with locations in United Kingdom, France and United States. DataSlide has
affiliations with academia from Carnegie Mellon University/DSSC, Universities of

- editor's comments:- Dataslide made its début in the pages of
StorageSearch.com in 2002 - when it announced it had filed patents
for a revolutionary
design of hard drive.
In 2004 - Dataslide announced it had
prototype (under NDA) with the equivalent of 72,000 virtual RPM and the
potential to reach the mechanical equivalent of 12 million RPM.
June 2009 - Dataslide said it was close to
their hard drive technology.
"DataSlide's Massively Parallel
architecture with 64 heads per surface could saturate a 32 lane
PCIe bus," said
Charles Barnes, CEO of DataSlide. "The Hard Rectangular Drive has the
industry reliability and cost advantages of
Hard Disk Drives with
superior performance and lower power then
Solid State Drives. The HRD
is over 60% lower power then HDD and during idle the media has zero power
dissipation making it the GREEN storage winner."
DataSlide says it leverages LCD and HDD processes to create an ultra
thin massive 2D head array which enables symmetric read and write performance of
160,000 random R/W IOPS with transfer rate of 500MB/s.
