Some data data to wow ’em at the water cooler

From the January 2009 issue of “Computer”:

  • The US power electric grid generates 15 terabytes of raw data each year
  • Google sorts through 20 petabytes of information daily
  • The Atlas experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN will generate 2 petabytes of info per second
  • New climate models which resolve rather than parameterize will cause a 1,000-fold increase in data
  • New genomics and proteomics work in biology produces, nationally, over 100 terabytes of data per day
