How far in the future?

I used to spend time at the IBM development lab in Rochester MN. I was privy to what might be available in the next year, but I know they were working on things far more in the future. Some of these new features were beyond our current comprehension. Hard to predict the future. With storage my guess is it will be smaller and smaller containers to hold more data. and I would think that redundancy for backup will be build in. And it will be fast.

    Portable USB / flash drive & SSD are the next secondary storage that we use until today other than CD/DVD as a storage media. Now holographic data storage is the next secondary storage device that is expected to be used in near future. It is is a new idea for data storage and experimental stage. But some countries using it now. For more info please link here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holographic_data_storage
    However more inputs are awaited.

    More context is needed.

    Solid state drives have been gaining popularity recently. They are no longer too expensive, and the capacity is now getting on par with HDDs. They perform better and are usually more robust.

    I would expect more advancements in that direction too.
