Did you realize that the disc drive industry is adding 10 Exabytes of storage per week to the world?

My iPhone has 128GB of storage on it which is a lot for a phone.

My Mac has 3TB or 23 times that amount of space.

I recently learned of a large, high-tech firm that has about 95 Petabytes of storage in their entire IT infrastructure. That is 32,000 times the amount of storage on my Mac.

The disk drive industry is shipping 7 times that amount every single day.

These numbers surprised me.
