What Does DNA Have To Do With Data Storage?

About this Event

While most people think of data storage in terms gigabytes and terabytes, the global need for long term storage is growing at an exponential rate. Studies show the need will reach 175 zettabytes by 2025. That’s 175 trillion gigabytes and growing at a 27%CAGR. Current data storage technology can’t keep up with burgeoning demand and has several other challenges including high energy use, device failure, data corruption, and high costs.

Iridia is developing a revolutionary ultra-high-density and ultra-high durability data storage solution using nature’s data storage tool, DNA. Iridia has developed a proprietary method for writing digital data in the form of synthetic DNA within a highly parallel microchip based “nano-foundry”.

Watch the webinar with Murali Prahalad, Iridia CEO, and Jay Flatley, Iridia Chairman of the Board and Chairman of Illumina to find out how DNA technology can store 1,000 times more data for decades using substantially less space and energy than current data centers.
