Is this possible? (Storage) (Off-topic?)

Sorry, but this has been bugging me for quite some time. In Star Trek, they
use "Isolinear" based memory circuts to store information in both the short
and long term. So, from the looks of it, it's some kind of crystal, and can
transmit it's data very quickly, and with no moving parts, so I'm guessing
that it's similiar to today's RAM. Now, for the hard part: It can hold
entire encyclopedia's in tiny amounts. In one episiode, they had nanites,
little robot-bugs that could hold "gigabytes of information," and were
microscopic. Furthermore, in some episodes, they find Chodak and T'Kon
ruins, between 900,000 to 700,000 years old, with half or more of the data
    Was crystaline storage ever attempted like this? Is it possible?
