The Great Disk Drive in the Sky

   "The storage system backing Google's search engine has to be able to
    serve millions of data reads and writes daily from thousands of
    individual processes running on thousands of servers, can almost never
    be down for a backup or maintenance, and has to perpetually grow to
    accommodate the ever-expanding number of pages added by Google's
    Web-crawling robots. In total, Google processes over 20 petabytes of
    data per day."
