I found interesting pictures in Royal Pingdom website.

It says that CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will be producing roughly 15 petabytes of data each year (15,000,000,000,000,000 bytes). In other words, the LHC is not only huge in physical size (filling a 17-mile long underground path), but it will produce enormous amounts of data for researchers to bite into.

Here are some of the pictures(Warning: High-res picture inside)



I’m wondering how the manage all of this stuff?
