Keep reading ahead to know more about the solution.
#1 The Solution
To solve this problem of storing the available video data, Microsoft has purchased 10 Million strands of synthetic DNA, called Oligonucleotides a.k.a. DNA molecules, from biology startup Twist and collaborated with researchers from University of Washington to explore the idea of using synthetic DNA to store huge amount of data.
Yes, Microsoft is indeed planning to store data in DNA. How cool is this?
