Definition: Dense Storage
There is always a thrust for effective utilization of space because of its limited availability and high costs. If the space is used effectively and efficiently, the purchase of new storage space is delayed.
There are numerous ways to improve the density of storage and hence better utilization of space. Pallets and stacks are used to improve the density of storage. The storage in warehouses and distribution centers is being made dense.
The storage density is even more important in the information technology sector. There is a continuous increase in the storage density of hard disks, USBs, pen drives, databases etc. and hence the storage is cost effective if measured in per unit terms.
