Sony and Panasonic are teaming up to develop a standard for professional-level optical drives. Ultimately, the duo hope to release a 300GB optical drive by the end of 2015, PCMag.com reports. The durable optical disc - dust-and-water-proof, resistant to changing temperatures and humidity - is ideal for a long-term storage tool. Sony and Panasonic plan to market the new disc format to businesses looking to store hefty amounts of data for long periods of time.
