IBM is developing the largest HDD ever
posted September 13 2011 0:59.57 by Giorgos Lazaridis




Do you think that your 1TB HDD is big? How about an 120 Petabute storage drive? One Petabyte is a HUGE amount of storage data and equals to 1.000 Terabytes. In other words, you will need 120.000 HDDs of 1TB each to have 120 PBs in total! That is humongous!

The data drive will be composed of 200,000 normal hard drives all working together. The drive was developed for "an unnamed client looking to conduct complex simulations"
