You haven't seen the tape silo that I saw on wednesday :-).  It impressed
the hell out of me, even with my hard-core hardware cynic hat on.

I *think* it was this beastie:
144,000 tape cartridges per silo
28.8 PetaBytes storage per silo
100TB per hour backup capacity

I want one for home so that I can back up my mail inbox :-)
