144 Petabytes of storage!
The 64GB SDXC (Secure Digital Extended Capacity) cards are now yesterday's news (figuratively and literally). The new standard CompactFlash 5.0 promises to give the world a theoretical 144 Petabytes of storage with the new CF cards.
At last you can store your media collection that you accumulate for so many years. It can also save collections of 70,000 closest friends!
Although SDXC cards have declared themselves happy with the storage of 2 Tera, CompactFlash is designed to help dispel the mundane and to break every reasonable expectations of the new cards.
It is known that CF cards are used primarily to support more storage space than the technology of Flash Memory and the announcement of the new standard cards, vindicates this.
To understand what 144 Petabytes, 1 Petabyte equals 1.024 Terabytes of data. On the other equal to 1 Tera 1.024 Gigabytes of data, a unit of measurement is more familiar to us all.
The only thing left to do is wait and see until you reach the future storage cards.
