A New Kind of Datacenter

A note from Internet Archive’s founder, Brewster Kahle:

Today (March 25, 2009) the Internet Archive and Sun Microsystems are launching a new datacenter that stores the whole web archive and serves the Wayback Machine.

And, it is a modular datacenter that sits outside in a shipping container. This 3Petabyte (3 million gigabyte) datacenter will handle the 500 requests per second as it takes over the full Wayback load.

Thank you to Sun and Internet Archive staff that helped conceive and build this new perspective on long term active archiving.
