Last week we passed a pretty cool milestone for the Globus service: 100 petabytes of data moved! Even in this age of "big data", 100PB is a big number. How big, you ask? Well, 100PB is roughly...
...twice the entire written works of mankind, from the beginning of history, in all languages,
...1,000 times all of Twitter,
...8.88 million hours of HD video,
...50 times all the material in US academic libraries,
...5 times the entire production of disk drives in 1995 (yeah, that's a pretty obscure one).
