Default Apple Orders 12PB of Storage

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.9to5mac.com/59892/what-is-apple-going-to-put-on-the-12-million-gigabytes-of-storage-it-just-ordered/' target='_blank'>http://www.9to5mac.com/59892/what-i...t-just-ordered/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Wow, Apple has placed an order for about twelve petabytes (12PB equals to 12,000TB) of storage from Isilon Systems, the Seattle, Washington-based maker of clustered storage solutions company with more than 1,500 clients, StorageNewsletter.com reported."</em></p><p><img height="455" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1302110081.usr105634.jpg" width="600" /></p><p>That is a hefty bit of storage, so conjecture is ramping up about what exactly Apple intends to do with it all. One thing swirling about is that they are going to use it for video downloads from iTunes, or perhaps for the rumored cloud storage via MobileMe. The full story is <a href="http://www.storagenewsletter.com/news/business/apple-isilon-itunes" target="_blank">here at the Storage Newsletter</a> (who knew there was a newsletter for storage?). What are your thoughts?</p>
