Windows 7: Massive 100 Terabytes (TB) Update to Virtual Earth

Massive 100 Terabytes (TB) Update to Virtual Earth

Microsoft is no stranger to multi-Terabyte data updates for its mapping, search and location platform in the Cloud, but in January 2009 the company simply outdid itself. In this context, the software giant introduced 100 TB of new data to Virtual Earth and Live Maps. The January 2009 Virtual Earth update contains fresh imagery from around the world, but with a focus on Europe and the United States. The 100 TB Virtual Earth imagery update introduced the past month is a direct result of the new content Microsoft was able to access from DigitalGlobe.

Don't you remember just a few years ago when 60G was MASSIVE...what a change in such a short time frame.
In 01 when I went to XP, I had a 40G drive and had it partted into 9 parts with triple, sometimes quad boot. Now I don't even have a single part under 100G's and have 1 1/2 TB's of space.
