Data Storage Requirements are Exploding

The primary driver of stored data growth in the coming decade will be newly-archived and re-archived data. Having timely access to this archival data will only become more mission critical over time.

When storing current and coming archival data, the primary concern is data security, durability, and low cost of storage - both the cost of storage and the cost to manage it for decades. For all categories, SSDs and HDDs are becoming increasingly prohibitive.

Folio Unleashes Data to Advance the National Defense Strategy

Folio Photonic's DataFilm-based media is a high-capacity, long-lived, and low-cost data storage solution. Use of Folio's media removes limitations on what can be both stored and accessed across an organization.


Encryption, air gap and WORM to prevent unauthorized access


Impervious to EMPs, salt water, high temps and altitudes


+100 year media life and and infinite backwards compatibility


Requires zero power or environmental cooling for written data storage

Industry-Transforming Technology

Folio Photonics’ DataFilm-based media utilize an extruded multi-layer photonic film embedded with photo-sensitive fluorophores, chromophores, or quantum dots to transcend traditional optical layering limitations.

This novel storage medium enables the creation of multi-TB discs, cylinders, and tapes with 100+ year lifespans and the lowest $/TB cost.

Domestically Produced

Folio Photonics is wholly owned by domestic investors. DataFilm is the only legacy storage medium entirely developed and manufactured in the United States.

About the Company
