The Storage Revolution

Recommended Posts

A one terabyte 3.5" Hard Drive just spotted on offer for below £60 (yes, even including that increased VAT).

Two terabytes for around £116 - so even cheaper per Gigabyte.

How long before we see the sub-£100 two terabyte drive? i.e. £50 a terabyte (or a fiver for 100GB).

My first hard drive 10MB ( 0.01GB), and it cost an arm and a leg! There were 5MB ones available at the time. What's really galling about the storage revolution is that the things are now far faster, and many many times more reliable too. If only other things had seen this rate of improvement over thirty years!

The answer: not much more than five months! :D

I expect the VAT rise on 22nd June will provide (a purely temporary) setback.
