IBM Assembles Record 120Petabyte Storage Array

IBM Research has just set a world record in data storage by building a drive array capable of holding 120 petabytes.

It was done at the request of an unnamed research group that needs this unprecedented amount of space for running simulations of some sort. These simulations have been expanding in size as the datasets grow, but also as more backups, snapshots, and redundancies are added.
