Nanometer Storage is dedicated to developing next generation
high capacity data storage hardware products for the information technology
sector. Incorporating new developments in the emerging fields of nanotechnology
and nanoscience, Nanometer Storage is developing data storage hardware products
that compete directly with hard drives, optical storage and flash memory.
- editor's comments:- Nanometer Storage is in stealth mode and hasn't
announced any products yet.
The tone of the blurb on its web site
suggests they're working on 3.5" form factor storage devices that will
offer more capacity than hard
drives or SSDs.
Many similar sounding claims were made in the
optical storage companies.
However, Nanometer Storage says their product is going to compete with optical

subject - I'll
let you know.
Recession ReCenter Data Recovery to China? |
|Editor:- February 5, 2009 -
if you stop and think about how the credit crunch may affect the
data recovery market -
you will see a paradox emerging.|
| On the one hand -
I expect that demand for these services will increase - because users will
extend the interval at which they replace their systems - thereby taking them
closer to the right hand edge of the
the other hand - when a failure does occur - particularly in the SMB / SOHO
market - users may shop around more to find lower cost suppliers for these
How will these contrary needs be resolved?
recovery is a very labor intensive business. As we have already seen in many
industries - China has natural competitive advantages because of the lower
hourly cost for skilled technicians. This may lead to Chinese based companies
