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!
