Unisys announces real-time PetaByte challenge

Unisys Corporation announced the "Real-Time PetaByte Challenge" - a research initiative aimed at developing petaByte-sized storage that will allow researchers, and businesses to have instant, real-time access to vast amounts of data at a more affordable price. Working with partners Microsoft and Cornell University, Unisys engineers aim to decrease data retrieval time by four orders of magnitude (1/10,000) over existing petaByte storage systems. (A petaByte is a unit of measurement in computers of one thousand million million Bytes.)
