CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will be producing roughly 15 petabytes of data each year (15,000,000,000,000,000 bytes). In other words, the LHC is not only huge in physical size (filling a 17-mile long underground path), but it will produce enormous amounts of data for researchers to bite into.
CERN seems to be well-equipped to handle the data from the gigantic particle accelerator when you take a look at their data center.
It’s pretty impressive stuff. You can explore a large collection of photos available over at CERN’s website.
