What would you do if you had an optical drive with 50Tb of storage capacity?  EDW everywhere?  This is still early stage stuff, but a great possibility in the world of eXtreme Data Warehousing.

Professor V Renugopalakrishnan of Harvard University has taken some genetically modified proteins from a salt marsh microbe and with some alterations and coating it on a DVD has started the possibility of some interesting stuff.

Why do I call this extreme?  Well, it is conceptual in nature, opens new issues in security and well is extremely interesting.

Take a look at the article it is interesting…
