Folio Keeps Data ALIVE

    Folio Disc

    $3/TB Media Cost
    With roadmap to <$1/TB


    $8/TB Media Cost


    $20/TB Media Cost,

    Unparralled Media Lifespan

    Folio Discs experience minimal wear and have near-infinite backwards compatibility — drastically cutting down on migration costs.

    Folio Disc

    Protected and secure via encryption, airgap, and physical Write Once Read Many structure


    Even though it is Write Once Read Many, data changes and deletion are possible due to physical data overwriting


    Physical Data overwriting enables changes and deletion

    Folio Disc

    Impervious to EMP

    Unaffected by Radiation and Saltwater

    Resilient to Heat, Cold, and Humidity

    HDD & TAPE

    EMP Causes Total Data Loss

    Destroyed by Radiation and Water

    Climate-Control Required

    Upper Layers: Device, Lower Layers: Climate Control

    Low Power Consumption

    Folio Discs require no power when data isn't being accessed and have minimal climate control requirements.
