Lol, one would think so, but apparently not. I did see something this morning indicating that the 128GB is available via build-to-order only.

So if they can fit 128 gigs into a little 1 inch by half inch by quarter inch space, they ought to be able to double that, and quadruple it, and more. It can't be long until we start seeing terabyte size drives and larger.

I remember when having 128MB on a stick was a big deal.

Add that one to my list of stuff to tell my grandkids some day. It's easy to see why new CS people are so taken aback by the idea of punch cards.

On hard drives, yes. We're talking about USB flash memory sticks.

And one static discharge...

I am waiting personally for newegg to carry some raid system like timecapsule for reasonable (timecapsule is a single hd, bad idea!)

You know, technically you could get a bunch of these, like at least 3, and use them in a pc in place of hard drives and then set up raid across them. I don't know how you would do it in windows, but in installing fedora, anaconda will give you the option to create raid arrays when you are laying out your partitions.

Yes, but it would be incredibly slow.

Not to mention costly! I don't think I'd want to sink $1500+ into a 128GB redundancy system (assuming the least - 3).

Would be a sweet external RAID backup once it gets over the Tera mark.

I'm kind of picturing (day dreaming about) those little pico ITX motherboards with mini SD cards each over a terabyte in storage then configured in RAID. You'd have something the size of two boxes of cigarettes but have as much storage as an entire datacenter. That would be cool.

I'd want one, where do I make the order at?

I'll set up my etsy shop to sell cute little high availability grids that fit in your shirt pocket.
