Killer Bandwidth

Need to move 2 petabytes from LA to San Francisco? If your data was already stored in a Blackbox, you could get over 350Gb/sec!

Here's the calculation:

  • 12 hours to load, travel and unload, or 43,200 seconds
  • 2 petabytes (that's 2 million billion bytes)
  • ~46 GBytes/sec or 368Gb/sec
Maybe our disks better come with a MPG rating!

Comments:

Reminds me of the old saying: "Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon filled with magtape."

Does that include the time to write to those disks and read from them?

BTW, isn't there any way to contact you from NearWalden.com?
It would be nice if you could atleast put up a contact form like mine (http://mayuresh.kathe.in/contact.html).
