Established as a leader in providing high-performance blockchain solutions, block.one is going to introduce “DISK” technology for their EOSIO software. According to the Chief Technology Officer Daniel Larimer’s latest twitter update, block.one is developing new technology for their EOSIO software named “DISK.”
This enables economical storage for a larger amount of database information for dApps. Though, this announcement is not official yet.
#eosio will soon have a disk backed key/value store as an option for contracts that can trade cpu time for storage capacity. Based on rocks db blockchain state can now scale far beyond limits of ram. This is especially useful for large datasets that are infrequently accessed.

Daniel Larimer, a cryptocurrency tycoon as well as a software programmer, is the founder of DPOS (Delegated Proof of Stake Algorithm) and is currently CTO of Block.one Company.
He pointed in his recent tweet that EOSIO will soon be launching a disk backed key storage as a choice for the contract that can incise CPU time for storage capacity.
The disk backed (DB) blockchain could now extend beyond the limits of RAM. The DB will prove a useful asset for large datasets that are barely accessed.
EOS, the open-source solution of block.one offering a solution for on-chain data storage named “DISK” which will help developers to store smart contracts and DApp data in a better means.
It is an economic but slower on-chain, in-contract-storage for computational tasks and not for large storage files. It is more affordable than RAM. Since DISK is an on-chain solution, it will operate faster.
Although the DISK features were unnoticed till now but early committed proves that “disks” were labeled in early November of last year.
What more the tweet speaks??
Larimer also penned down that this API will be on papers in the coming week. “Disk” initial alpha release would be endorsed by RAM. A great amount of the work to assimilate disk backed has already been done and will be released this year.
