Size Of Internet

Q. How much physical space does the Internet take up?

  • The storage industry produces in the neighborhood of 650 million hard drives per year. If most of them are 3.5-inch drives, that’s 8 liters (2 gallons) of hard drive per second.
  • This means the last few years of hard-drive production represents the majority of global storage capacity—would just about fill an oil tanker.
  • So, by that measure, the Internet is smaller than an oil tanker.
