Security for virtualized datacentres

TDK is planning to release its first products, a new family of CD-RW drives - based on MultiLevel recording technology later this year.

The company demoed the technology at the Consumer Electronics Show out in Vegas.

According to this report in the EETimes, it will lead to a threefold improvement in recording speed and storage capacity.

ML technology will allow 2GB of data to be recorded at up to 36X on special ML discs, and 700MB on standard CD-RW discs at 12X. TDK plans to ramp the capacity up to 2.6GB and then to over 3GB in swift succession, the EETimes said.

The announcement coincides with a big push from members of the ML alliance to promote the benefits of the technology. Members of the group so far include Mitsubishi, Plextor and Calimetrics as well as TDK. ®
