Stacked Volumetric Optical Disc
Each "layer" (a thin polycarbonate disc) holds around 9.4 GB of information, and the wafers are stacked in layers of 100 or so, giving overall data storage increase of 100× or more.
SVOD might likely be a candidate, along with HVDs, to be a next-generation optical disc standard.
