Data centers are booming right now, gearing up to handle compute, network and storage needs for a more connected world. But they already have large footprints, and as the collection of data continues to accelerate, those facilities will have to expand as well. So the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity is looking for storage media that take up significantly less space than traditional technologies.
