Microsoft Preserving Music on Glass, Storing It in Doomsday Vault

Svalbard, Norway is home to the Global Seed Vault, also known as the Doomsday Vault, and “deep inside the same arctic mountain location,” a Global Music Vault will preserve heaps of music stored on glass as part of the collaborative Project Silica venture by Elire Group and Microsoft. As stated in a press release, Elire Group “is a venture group, commercializing global concepts with our own ventures for mobility, infrastructure, electric aviation and the global music vault.” Together with Microsoft, they’ve developed a proof of concept glass platter that can store up to 100 GB (gigabytes) of data in an incredibly tamper-proof manner.
