The paper has demonstrated the impact of developments in nanotechnology to Hard Disk Drive (HDD) technology. The paper has put forth a proposition to enhance the modeling of future storage devices based on innovations in the field of Nanotechnology and MEMS using modeling tools. The paper has elucidated the influence of recent advances of Nano?]Composites, MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems) etc. and their implications towards the development of storage devices in the future. The paper has discussed about reliability modeling, nano-physics modeling and thin-film polymer modeling of HDD technology on computer-aided engineering tools such as MATLAB. The paper has also devised a design of Nanotechnology and MEMS enabled future HDD.
