How much data does X store? http://techexpectations.org/2014/05/17/how-much-data-does-x-store/
Being in the tech infrastructure industry, I often get the question, “How big is that service?” or “How much does x store?”
Here is where I will keep track. (updated 5/18/14)
Some interesting tidbits:
- The NSA is building a facility that will be able to store at least an estimated 2 exabytes
- EMC claims to have built a single storage system of 880 petabytes - a bit of a mystery named Project Beatle
- I estimate that Youtube will surpass 400 petabytes of storage this year
Here's what is posted right now:

Holy smokes that is a LOT of storage.
Internet Archive is relatively tiny!
What is the Beatle storage cloud?
Any idea for Dropbox and Box?
Want to see the “behind the scenes” of one of the world’s largest cloud-scale Object Stores? How big is big? think 300,000 spindles. Think of 1,000,000,000 events daily. Think of 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 bytes of data (1 EB). This, BTW – is a pure SDS solution on commodity hardware – and while we won’t name the customer, I would wager thatmany of us touch it every day without even knowing. BTW – while you see Atmos in the construction phases in the video, note that in the end, it’s running on COTS hardware
