The Physical Size Of Big Data. How Much Data the World Create Every Year?
A report from Stanford University found that the whole of humanity produces around 1.200 exabytes of data every year. Let's break that down into gigabytes and see what would happen if we were to store this data on
several common devices.
- 80.53 billion 16Gb iPhone 5s. Laid down end to end, those iPhones would circle the earth more than 100 times.
- 40.27 billion 32Gb Apple iPads. Stacked on top of the other, this pile would reach to the moon.
- 20.13 billion 64Gb USB flash drives. The volume of these drives would be enough to fill up more than 33 1/2 Empire State Buildings (x33 1/2).
- 629.14 million 2Tb external hard drives. The total volume of these drives could fill more than 292 Great Pyramids (x292).
