Facebook is archiving their massive cold data onto optical discs for safer and more cost effective long term storage
 

During the 2016 CES, I first mentioned the fact that Panasonic and Facebook teamed up to develop Freeze Ray, a method of storing enormous amounts of cold data content onto optical discs. Given the magnitude of the content for Facebook, it was not small task to develop a system that can download, span, and write the data onto and array of high capacity optical discs. Fortunately, Panasonic created this interesting and informative video on how and why they created this new archiving application, and what it’s intended to be used for. Check out the video presentation or click on the following link to watch instantly.

This is another example of why optical discs will continue to be a major part of the storage market. The death of the optical disc was greatly exaggerated, as the cliché goes. The more content individuals create, the more methods they will want to store and save that content. Optical discs continue to be both the most economical, as well as the most secure storage method against hackers and computer viruses.
