Data storage device is one of the most integral components present in any electronic computing device. With growing usage of electronically stored data, digital data storage is expected to grow exponentially in near future. Due to growing need for high performance data servers and cloud data centers, high data storage capacity is major concern for storage device manufacturers. Optical data storage is a technology used for storing data on an optical readable medium. Optical data storage devices are the devices that use laser beam to write or read data from any media. It involves data storage by using a laser beam focused on a spinning disc. The data is stored by making marks in a pattern that can be further read by using laser beam. This provides highly reliable and convenient storage of data as compared to conventional magnetic and micro film data storage methods. Additionally, optical data storage devices are random access devices that enable retrieval of data on demand irrespective of the order in which the data is originally stored.
Growing demand for high data storage capacity is one of the most significant factors driving the optical data storage devices market. Optical data storage devices offer an efficient and economical way of storing and retrieving large amount of data at a high performance level. In addition, optical data storage devices have higher shelf lives as compared to the conventional data storage devices such as micro films, tapes and others. Optical data storage devices are typically less vulnerable to environmental damages which ensure the safety of the data stored. Thus, optical data storage devices are less susceptible to data corruption and offer high degree of data stability. Optical data storage devices require low cost per bit storage as compared to the conventional data storage method. Moreover, as the data is stored using a laser beam, large amount of data can be stored in a lesser space.
This helps in increasing the density of data stored on any device. Furthermore, optical data storage devices offer high flexibility for use in different applications. Optical data storage devices are useful for a range of devices such as compact discs (CDs), digital versatile discs (DVDs), portable music players, memory sticks, laptops and others. This is expected to generate high demand for optical data storage devices in near future.
