“We have been following holographic storage for a number of years, and have received interest from a number of customers for this type of solution, and we are very pleased to work with InPhase to bring the Tapestry product to market,” said Charlie Walsh, CEO of ISSI Data. “The ISSI Data team continually watches the market for next-generation technologies on behalf of our customers. We believe the high-capacity, long-life characteristics of the InPhase product will be very valuable to many of our corporate and government accounts as an archival solution. This technology represents the next phase of archival storage, and we are excited to be involved in this new market.”
