When I upgraded from 386 to 486, my hard drive went from a measly 40MB to a whopping 240MB. Totally blown away. Look at all this extra space I have! That was 22 years ago. Since then, memory cards that store a thousand times as much are the size of a fingernail and cost relatively little. 2-4TB hard drives are now also pretty commonplace and inexpensive. So, I’m kind of indifferent to the storage capacity race these days.
Then Seagate come along and announce a monster 60TB 3.5″ drive. This would be impressive even if it were just a regular old hard drive, but this thing is an SSD. To give you an idea of just how ridiculous this capacity is, Seagate put together a list of highlights. Right at the top, they mention that you can reach 1PB (1 Petabyte) with only 17 of them.
