    atomic-scale memory, in the scientific journal Nature Nanotechnology - By manipulating interactions between individual atoms, created a device can pack hundreds of times more information per square inch than the best currently available data-storage technologies,working prototype is part of a decades-long attempt to shrink electronics down to the atomic level, would allow to store information efficiently, in less space cheaply. By comparison, tech companies build warehouse-sized data centers . Corporations including International Business Machines Corp. and Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. also have explored research to reduce such space needs.

    #2 Daniel, thanks for your comment - I really hoped that someone will invested in this subject. Yes, first step was done and I hope we will have a such data-storage to manage Big data in a near future. Science fiction is not anymore science fiction. This current development on the atom's level is fascinating, isn't it?

    There is still a long way to develop atom scale memories, but this is a very important step in that direction. For sure, now companies will dedicate more resources in this area.
