When I first saw it, I was like Wow, that is smoking..... Sweet.....

Now I wonder what is he using all the storage space for?

He can't use all that for music, because I have 1TB hdd filled with music files and I hardly listen to half of it.

May be movies...

Guy probuly operates a torrent site, after all he is in Russia. :)

He could be using it for anything. A college of mine from work, he just built a 100TB storage nas device at home, in a Raid 10 configuration running inside a virtual machine.

Is there a way to physically link or combine the hard drives so that it would be recognized as one hard drive by the system?

Yes, you can use a Raid Controller.

Surprisingly enough, there are plenty of real world applications for that much data, but not outside the areas of research and science, and I guess the cloud. I have no idea what some guy from Russia would want with that much space other than to become famous for doing so (mission accomplished in that regard).

I can already see some good use, where all that storage might be useful. Rainbow Tables, HD Movies, Music files, Surveillant Camera Footages and TV Shows.
