Backblaze data storage has grown 750% in less than 3 years!
You guys are truly storing an incredible amount of data ;-) Of course, all of this data is stored in our custom, open-sourced, Backblaze Storage Pods.
How much data is 75 petabytes?
Since it’s hard to envision how much data that is, one comparison is that this is 1/4 of the amount Facebook stores. (In September, Facebook announced it was storing 250 petabytes for its 1.1 billion users.)
Here are other fun comparisons if all of that data were just photos, songs or movies:
These comparisons assume:
* Average high-resolution digital photo is 2 megabytes.
* Average iTunes song is 3 megabytes.
* Average 15 second Instagram videos is 2 megabytes. (Source: DigitalTrends)
* 25 billion songs have been downloaded from iTunes in all time. (Source: Apple)
