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 

Holy smokes that is HUGE. 

Without the YouTube videos, how big is Google's index of the a Web now?
