How data centers retrieve data


Recommended Posts

OK, after a long, exhausting study session about how data centers collect data; I have came to the conclusion that some shit is just way over my head. I hate looking for answers... only to find more questions.

I would imagine the DC's would collect data through targeted strings from search queries. Is it that simple? I am interested to know how / what protocols would need to be used and what kind of server would be able to process a half a zetabyte of data; which our internet as we know it consists of 500 exabytes. I know that there is a new DC opening in Virginia and is boasting SIX ZETABYTES...

Moral/ethics aside, how do you feel about our government having the capability to do... well... anything with your personal data?
