Storage problem solution

Researchers have proposed to use DNA to store information.

Although it can potentially store more information in a given volume, it has lots of challenges; Currently, data is read and written at a frequency of several hundreds of MHz (almost 1 bit for every 2u20135 ns) (ignoring the time spent in seeking information, which takes a ms or so).

Although it is touted to be coming soon, in my opinion, it will take a long time if it has to overtake the existing hard disk drive based storage or even the flash memory based SSDs.
