By experimenting with such small magnetic cells, the researchers learned that the behavior of magnetic regions in narrow tracks is similar to that of the much larger regions now found on conventional magnetic disks.
Other media types are under consideration, including small form-factor magnetic disks.
At this density, a magnetic disk surface the size of a human thumbnail could contain 14.
As is already the case with most all magnetic tape drives, widespread use of loss-less data compression and compaction will further emerge to improve volumetric efficiencies and reduce storage costs while improving data transfer speed for magnetic disks.
The other 10% reside at the higher end of the storage hierarchy on fixed magnetic disk subsystems and solid-state memory devices.
