Fujitsu technology saves hard drive data

Researchers at Fujitsu have developed a new hard disk technology they say will reduce the likelihood of data degradation by as much as 80 per cent.

Fujitsu’s Layer Exchange Interaction Stabilized (Lexis) technology is a new magnetic recording medium that attaches to the platters that make up hard drives, which due to thermal effects degrade the data they contain.

The technology will also boost drive capacities, the company said, claiming it has constructed a single-platter Lexis-based drive that provides a capacity of 78GB and a record data density of 56Gb per square inch.
