When Will We Run Out Of Space?
Space … Are we really running out of it already? Information is being created, shared and stored on computers at an explosive rate, with nearly 8 years worth of content being uploaded to YouTube every day*. It seems like yesterday when all our 8-track tapes and spring break photo albums fit on the shelf over our dresser. How ironic that now we accumulate so much more music and photos in much less physical space. But where do we keep it all? And is there a limit to the amount of available space? With more attention on how to store all our growing volume of stuff, storage options abound. It's easier and more critical now than ever to have a safe, secure, and automatic way to back up your files. Mozy is not running out of space, and the trusted leader in the online backup industry gives you peace of mind, so you know that your files will always be available when you need them.
Magnificent CD Collections
In its day, the mind-blowing technology of the Compact Disc was more seductive than a bacon-wrapped iPad is today. Early adopters snatched up shiny versions of their favorite albums and cataloged them in niftily designed shelves and display cases to be the envy of all those who looked on. Then, after a glorious decade, the CD's reign began to come to a grinding halt. Those who were once hailed as kings of the digital music age were reduced to antique holders, with racks full of relics. We have obtained images of some of these collections, and their proud owners, a true tribute to a great era.
Massive Data Centers
From Microsoft to Google, Time Warner to Hitachi's new "Green" data center in Yokohama, Japan, companies have massive data centers that work behind the scenes to deliver the world with the fastest, most energy efficient data processing systems. IBM, for example, operates eight million square feet of data center space on six different continents. Here are a few incredible portraits of some of the world's largest data centers. Some show simplicity, while others show just how complex and congested some centers can become.
