Introducing a DNA data storage solution
Thanks to IoT, computing and communications technologies play an ever-increasing role in our lives, but we are producing massive amounts of data that could soon be too much for our storage supply. With 175 zettabytes of data predicted to be produced by 2025 and only 20 % of it able to be in storage, lack of space poses a serious risk to digital infostructure and safety. Furthermore, with current storage data centres being major contributors of CO2, there is an urgent need for alternative storage solutions. The EU-funded DATANA project aims to fill this need by introducing a patented solution that would allow for the use of DNA as efficient, sustainable and abundant storage space.
