BTW, I don't understand how they back all of this stuff up. Just
impossible numbers.

I doubt that they use a traditional backup methodology. Seems more likely to
me that they use an industrial strength version of a tool similar to this:

www.snapraid.it

Instead of creating another copy of the data, you create a matrix that then
allows you to recreate any missing or corrupt data.

Yup, I posted this in 2015. I'll bet they are above 400 PB now.

And their new data center in Phoenix might have another 100 PB.

Wow, their new data center was up in seven days, not including planning
and equipment procurement.
