    Image storage a problem? You need this!

    http://www.channelregister.co.uk/201...m_dcs9900_2tb/

    With the 2TB drives, IBM says a rack of DCS9900 storage can hold up to 1.2PB, with a maximum of 2.4PB in two racks containing 1,200 drives.
    PB = Petabyte = 1,000 Terrabytes = 1,000,000 Gigabytes

    And just think!.... 2Pb drives will be selling for $100 bucks in a years time!

    And!!

    A timely reminder(for me) too Kym. My 1Tb drive is now totally stuffed with ... stuffings of some kind
    I can't back up my 2009 images stash, and delete it from my main drive as the(close too)271Gb's of 2009 images won't fit onto the external drive.
    I just can't understand how I ended up with over 250G's of image last year!
    I also have some scans of old images for my mum on there(1.5G) and my sons stash of D70s images(11G) and the remaining flotsam is all mine!

    ... DCS9900 huh? ..... ... I may need the higher capacity DCS100000 model , I reckon!

    No, but I have a friend who does have one, they are amazingly heavy. It is funny watching people when she hands the card over, they expect it to be light and plastic, and the reactions to its weight are amusing.

    I want to know what happens when we surpass yottabytes as a storage capacity....
