New report predicts mass integration of HDDs into consumer electronics.The recently released 2005 Integration of Digital Storage into Consumer Electronics Report from Coughlin Coughlin is a surname, and may refer to:
Some of the trends presented in this report are:
* By 2010 we expect that close to 40% of total shipped hard disk drives will be used in consumer applications, up from about 14% in 2004
* By 2010 3.5-inch disk drive will comprise To embrace, cover, or include; to confine within; to consist of.
In the law governing patents—grants of an exclusive right or privilege to make, use, or sell an invention or product for a term of years—the term comprise about 31% of the total volume, down from 67% in 2004.
* One inch disk drives with capacities of 8-10 GB using perpendicular recording A method of digital recording on a magnetic disk in which the bits are in a vertical arrangement instead of horizontal in order to take up less space. Also called "vertical recording," perpendicular recording is expected to materialize with areal densities exceeding 200 gigabits per will be available by the second half of 2005
* One inch drive capacities of up to 20 GB could be available by the end of 2006
* By 2006-2007 we will see 1 TB 3.5-inch hard disk drives
* Home reference data could growth from 322 GB in 2005 to 1,933 GB by 2010 for a digital home
* Total networked attached storage (NAS (1) See network access server.
(2) (Network Attached Storage) A specialized file server that connects to the network. A NAS device contains a slimmed-down operating system and a file system and processes only I/O requests by supporting the popular ) in the home could total about 15 M units by 2010, with about 25% of this number being multiple drive (RAID) storage systems
