  • editor's comments:- March 2011 - among other things DISC's article about optical archive storage - makes the interesting observation that when comparing optical, tape and HDD based long term storage - optical has less CO2 emissions and is therefore "greener".

    Taken in isolation - if you just want to archive data - that may be true. But if you want to be able to access, process and repurpose archive data for new markets which require immediate online access - then owning data which you can't access quickly enough is a waste of time. I discuss these new markets in my classic article - this way to the Petabyte SSD.
