                                                This should read "2 TB
                                                of data/disk"

2 TB are a lot and we could use 2 or more drives.

I can't comment on server farms, but we probably waste a lot of
resources to store selfie videos, showing people taking selfie photos.
Maybe all the useful data stored by one or the other server farm could
be stored even on a 1 TB drive. I suspect that most stored digital data
nowadays is nothing but digital waste.
