Data Centres – Collective Memories

Data centres are magnificent interior settings closely related to the most popular industry, IT. In these huge rooms plenty of hard disc are set up and they store data. It is not about data in general, but our data, the transactions, the photos, the thoughts, the works we have shared online. This industrial environment acts like a collective brain and memory storage. The pictures below have not been taken from a science fiction movie. They are actually real!

How many Petabyte is your memory?
