The daily activities performed by the whole population of the world in one day is a big data set that is unstructured and cannot be used directly. However, when this data is sorted and structured, it become useful. Advanced data storage devices such as hard disks and powerful computers are required to accomplish this. The data required and generated by computational activities performed by the central processing unit (CPU) of a computer has increased from a few megabytes to terabytes. Computational activities such as Big Data Analytics, national security data or consumer goods purchase data at a supermarket require storage of large amount data generated on a daily basis. Currently available hard disks that are used to store data are inefficient in handling data. This has created a market need to innovate and develop...
