Western Digital launches open-source zettabyte storage initiative

Western Digital has announced a project called the Zoned Storage initiative that leverages new technology to create more efficient zettabyte-scale data storage for data centers by improving how data is organized when it is stored.

As part of this, the company also launched a developer site that will host open-source, standards-based tools and other resources.
