Specification[edit] Density: 1.4 PetaBytes/ rack Power consumption: 3 kW / PetaByte No Air Conditioning, instead use excess heat to help heat the building.


Design history[edit] The PetaBox, custom-designed by Internet Archive staff, was originally created to safely store and process one petabyte (a million gigabytes) of information. The goals and design points were:[3] Low power: 6 kW per rack, 60 kW for the entire storage cluster High density: 100+ TB/rack Local computing to process the data (800 low-end PCs) Multi-OS possible, Linux standard Colocation friendly Shipping container friendly: Able to be run in a 20' by 8' by 8' shipping container. Easy Maintenance: One system administrator per petabyte Software to automate full mirroring Easy to scale Inexpensive design Inexpensive storage


History[edit] The first 100 terabyte rack became operational at the European Archive in June 2004. The second 80 terabyte rack became operational in San Francisco that same year. The Internet Archive then spun off its PetaBox production to the newly formed company Capricorn Technologies. Between 2004 and 2007, Capricorn replicated the Internet Archive's deployment of the PetaBox for major academic institutions, digital preservationists, government agencies, high-performance computing (HPC) and major research sites, medical imaging providers, digital image repositories, storage outsourcing sites, and other enterprises. Their largest product uses 750 gigabyte disks. In 2007 the Internet Archive data center housed approximately three petabytes of PetaBox storage technology. It is now in the fourth version. General specs are: 24 disks per 4U high rack units 10 units per rack running Ubuntu 240 disks of 2 TB/each per rack
