    If you find this blog interesting, and either have an interest in or work in data protection/backup and recovery environments, you should check out my book, Enterprise Systems Backup and Recovery: A Corporate Insurance Policy. Designed for system administrators and managers alike, it focuses on features, policies, procedures and the human element to ensuring that your company has a suitable and working backup system rather than just a bunch of copies made by unrelated software, hardware and processes.

Aside – How much is a Petabyte?

Posted by Preston on 2009-07-25

OK, so this has been linked to a … bazillion … times by various storage-type bloggers over the last week. but it’s only been in the last 24 hours that I’ve actually scrolled through the entire list. (Truth be told, the colour combinations don’t work for me … perhaps they should have used more chartreuse to keep my attention.)

The folks over at Mozy have added a blog entry: How Much is a Petabyte? As much as anything, it’s a nice little overview of the historical growth of storage. (Having reached the point where at home my partner and I have about 20TB of space between us and my servers, I can attest to storage growth!) If you’ve got 3 minutes to spare (and you haven’t already read it), you may find it interesting.
