Storage shipments - 1 Billion Gigabytes a year!

Stephen Lawson reports on Computerworld - Demand for storage is doubling every 18 to 24 months, and within five years, Roberson expects to see a "yottabyte year" when the industry as a whole ships 1 yottabyte (a billion gigabytes), or 1,000 zettabytes, of storage capacity.

HP’s new HP StorageWorks 9100 Extreme Data Storage System (ExDS9100) has a base configuration will consist of four blade servers and three storage blocks, with 246TB of storage. Customers will be able to add either type of capacity independently of the other. With two racks, a system can have as much as 820TB of storage capacity.

The ExDS9100 is scheduled to ship in the fourth quarter. HP predicted that it will cost less than $2 per gigabyte in a typical configuration.

Do you like playing in the game which you need to use wow gold, when you do not have World of Warcraft Gold, you must borrow warcraft gold from friends, or you buy wow gold. If you get cheap wow gold, you can continue this game.
