Growing Storage Requirements

Category: InternetTeknovis @ 6:45 pm

I read some interesting facts regarding the globally increasing demand for storage:

  • Walmart adds a billion rows per minute to its database.
  • YouTube contains as much data as all commercial television networks broadcast in a year.
  • The Large Hadron Collider can generate terrabytes of data per second.

These facts are from a speech given by Jim Held, who is the Director of Terra-Scale computing in Intel.
