Reminds me a bit to SUN Microsystems Modular Datacenter "Project Blackbox" from around 2006-ish, but with Exabytes scale in mind, rather than processing power...

100 Petabyte is equal to 200,000 laptop that has 500 GB storage not 200 million !!!

One thing this video fails to mention about AWS, is that if your AWS resources are not highly optimized, AWS can get very expensive very fast.
AWS billing is like your electric bill, you only get charged for what you use. And AWS charges for just about everything. Now... there are companies out there who effectively have the AWS equivalent of running every electrical device in a home 24/7/365. Would you like to have that electric bill? There are AWS people savvy enough to run scripts to fine tune AWS settings. To keep the analogy going... would you need three stoves in your home if only two people are living there? Probably not.

after 50 years when quantum computing becomes mainstream people will laugh at this video saying what a clunker these memory boxes were, just like we laugh at the first computers 3 floors high..

There are no 12K cameras ( as said here 8:32 ) , 8K yes, however as of 12/2019 Hollywood doesn't make films in 12K. Oh dear, how many other facts are wrong that I'm not versed in to recognize the errors.

So, if a customer shifts to some other company, do they really "delete" the data?

How is the scanning for viruses done where a truckload of data has to be moved physically?

I don't think it's safe showing the trucks to the public.

When I think of war-proof boxes that can withstand extreme conditions, I think of snowball

I think a better estimation of an MP3 size would be 5MB, this isn't 2004, we don't have to use 128kbps MP3s anymore ;)

And now when you compromise AWS you get pretty good information source.

They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the Internet. And again, the Internet is not something that you just dump something on. It's not a big truck. It's a series of tubes. And if you don't understand, those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and it's going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material.

In my hometown they have a server building. It uses more electricity than my home town combined. Which makes the electricity company a hard time keeping up delivering power, also it causes problems to neighboring companies because they can't get the power they need.

1 notebook = 500gb | 2 notebooks = 1tb * 1000 | 2000 notebooks = 1 petabyte * 100 | 200000 notebooks = 100 petabytes The snowmobile carries 200k notebooks of storage at 500GB apiece, not 200 million.

You can also convert 100 petabytes to gigabytes, divide by 500 and get the same answer.

-20 what? Celsius? Makes me think that because he didn't address that.

This is cool, but it won't matter once we have 5g and customer's data upload only takes ~22 years!

We used an Amazon Snowball to ship 80tb to the cloud. That thing was surprisingly heavy, but it was really cool to work with. I imagine I could have thrown it off the roof without a care in the world.

@4:25 the scale is off by a lot. which is funny because its still huge, they keep showing 100 blocks not 1000 blocks. 1 tb = ~ 1,000 gb
bhees - 8 days ago
Actually each block is 10x10 small blocks; they're showing 1 tb = 10,000 gb. I can imagine some non-technical graphic designer realizing that 10x10 wasn't enough so they added one more level to 'fix' it. Also they're too high by a factor of 1000 in how many laptops equal the storage on the truck.

100PB is not 200,000,000 500gb laptops it's 200,000
