  • 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 demonstrated a prototype (under NDA) with the equivalent of 72,000 virtual RPM and the potential to reach the mechanical equivalent of 12 million RPM.

    In June 2009 - Dataslide said it was close to productizing 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.
