Re: filmscanners: High Capacity Storage (was CD RW Deal)


I think you're absolutely right about CD's having more format longevity than
Iomega products.  But I figure in five years, or maybe 10, we'll have be
able to get 10 terabyte?? raid arrays with mirroring for a few hundred bucks
and we'll transfer all our Iomega's or CD's or DVD's or whatever to live
online hot swappable secure storage.  (how much is a terabyte, anyways).  My
point being that CD's are a good bet for long term storage  if you don't
mind having a few thousand of them around.  (You can't fit very many 4000dpi
TIF scans on a CD). But maybe there's a better short term solution to get us
over the hump waiting for high capacity storage to get as cheap as CD's have

Just my thoughts,

Bob Kehl
