Which seems like a lot, but with 30TB HDDs coming in 2023 and even larger capacities in the next couple years, 100PB won't be all that hard to make happen over 10 years' time, even with redundant storage and backups taking it to 300-400PB of "actual" storage footprint.

Back of the napkin math says it would only take 5 to 10 racks of something like this to cover the storage requirements. Not something that comes cheap, but certainly doable and still below the industrial scale of massive data centers run by most big tech companies.
