The potential speed breakthrough for mass storage offered by volume holographic storage technology (Holostore) is discussed. With the I/O (input/output) bottleneck in regards to mass storage currently becoming more and more severe, the timing could not be better for such a technology. First, Holostore technology in general is reviewed, and the nature of the I/O bottleneck is discussed. Then, a specific implementation for mass storage is presented with some recent innovations. Finally, the potential for Holostore technology for the archival level of the memory hierarchy is assessed.<>
