It appears that we haven't got the tech to store off ALL the data that the LHC is going to be chucking out. 60% of respondents say that we should store all the data for future reference and checking. I fall into that camp. HOW do we store it though? Methinks another advancement in data storage is needed.

The archival company I am employed at produces the highest resolution, permanently archived data in the world, commercially... The next best thing to our archival procedures is digital storage, and we all know the dangers of that!

However at those data rates there is no technology in existence that can permanently store the data in a timely fashion.

It sort of depends. One could buy several thousands of 1-terabyte drives which cost around $200 today. Why not buy those at a cost, for a grand total of say 3 million bucks, when the entire cost of the project is inthe uber-billions?
