Optical data storage is the storage of data which is readable through optical medium. Generally, data is written to optical media, such as CDs and DVDs. The data is written with laser for the purposes of backup or archival. Optical data storage devices are the devices that use laser beam to write or read data from any media.
The growth of global optical data storage device market has been attributed to growing demand for high data storage capacity and growing usage of electronically stored data. Furthermore, growing need for high performance data servers and cloud data centers is expected to fuel growth of optical data storage devices market in coming years. Safety of the stored data, lesser space and low cost for storage as compared to the conventional data storage devices are some of the prominent factors behind the tremendous growth of these devices. However, optical storage rewritable formats suffer from compatibility issues between drives.
