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: http://englishrussia.com/index.php/2010/10/20/home-data-storage-for-70-tb/ , 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.

70 TB ! Im sure its nice knowing you don't have to delete anything for a loooooooong time !
BTW, sure its nice , but what about the speed ? I guess its a bit slow since he is using traditional 7500 rpm disks with the green label ( which meant favoring the power consumption over performance in WD ).
Did you hear about the 24 SSDs in raid ? that guy managed to get a bandwidth of about 2 Gbps out of them ! ( still, they were only 6 TB )

70 TB  is abit too much of space for a average user =)
would be amazing if you download huge huge amount of data everyday but a 1TB will be more efficient though.
