1.8 PETA BYTES

AMOUNT OF PORN THAT A USER UP­LOADED TO TEST AMA­ZON’S UN­LIM­ITED CLOUD SER­VICE

APC Australia - - Number Crunch -

Red­dit user beas­ton02 has checked to see if Ama­zon’s un­lim­ited cloud ser­vice re­ally lives up to its name — his tool of choice was an archive of nearly 1.8 petabytes of porn. Us­ing scripts to record pub­lic we­b­cams and au­to­mat­i­cally up­load the dig­i­tal video, the footage reached nearly 2 mil­lion gi­ga­bytes, roughly 293 years of 480p footage. The par­tic­u­lar un­lim­ited ser­vice that Ama­zon of­fered has since been scrapped... although beas­ton02 de­nies he had any­thing to do with this.
