So yesterday, I took a trip across the street, paid out around $180, and walked out with a single, small box capable of storing one terabyte of data.
For those of you keeping count, that’s one thousand gigabytes, and that’s pretty amazing. It’s replacing a crusty and failing old LVM of three concatenated 250gb parallel ATA drives that have started suffering from some failed sectors of late. So, a terabyte should be enough storage for anyone for a long time, right? I remember saying the same thing in 1996 when the first one gigabyte drives were coming out. So, ten years from now, will we all have petabyte sized drives in our computers?
