View Full Version : YouTube's Website Storage must be Humongous

I don't know how many videos which are posted on their site, but I can't even guess the size of their total storage. Anyone know?

In 2006 it was estimated to be 45TB. I'd estimate that it's at about 10 times that by now.
If there's 50M videos served a day or 69k in 2 minutes which at 10 M a video you're looking at 690GB of ram.

I hear they back it up to floppy, just like in the movies.
