Windows 7: Russian Hacker Builds 70 Terabyte Home Computer

Russian Hacker Builds 70 Terabyte Home Computer

Quote:

Ever find yourself deleting some files to make room for your overgrown media collection? Thanks to a new hack from a Russian PC enthusiast you should have plenty of room for your MP3 collection, along with the collections of everybody else you know. The hack consists of an array of 60 hard drives and the whole thing holds a whopping 70 terabytes of data.

That translates to 70,000 DVD-quality movies or, if you’re more musically inclined, somewhere in the neighborhood of 24 million songs. Of course, that kind of storage space doesn’t come easy. Besides the 60 drives themselves the rig requires 40 cooling fans to keep the temperature under control.

The final package may not win any awards for case design but the whole thing has a certain kind of stark utilitarian beauty to it. Presumably the unnamed maker is keeping the case open so he can switch the set up out with even heftier drives as they come along to keep the project from looking like an absurd relic a decade or so from now thanks to the storage equivalent to Moore’s Law.

How does it make him a hacker though? He hasn't hacked anything, just set up a huge RAID array. Though still impressive.

He is a hacker and you and I are also a hacker. Hackers means computer enthusiast, not someone who breaks security get un-authorized access to data or steals data. Crackers is some one who breaks computer security and steals data and etc. But people tends to use the term hacker in place of the term cracker which is wrong...

So everyone in this forum is a hacker...

This is how I categorize them,
Geek - Computer Enthusiast
Hacker - someone who bypasses computer security to gain unauthorized access
Cracker - someone who cracks a code system, written or broadcasted.

Pretty soon we will have a television series called "Digital Hoarders" and it will be about the issues faced by people who have an insatiable appetite for storage and data preservation.

Wonder what he will use for backup?

Edit: Just the noise from the hard drives and 40 fans would find me searching for files to delete rather than building a larger storage bin.
