That's impressive (but to be honest, I wouldn't know what to do with 32 TB of disk space...)

Give it a decade or two and you'll be wondering why anyone would bother with such a petty amount. :smile:

"Intel describes [it] as the size of an old-fashioned 12-inch ruler"
How long does Intel think a brand-new 12-inch ruler is? :scratch:
Yes, I know, about 30 cm...

It's a myth that Napoleon Bonaparte was as short as many have said, at least when compared to contemporary non-rulers.

I suspect that even today if you are editing 4K videos then 32 TB isn't such a great amount of disk space.

Remember a time when 5-10 MB HDDs were considered HUMONGOUS!?

(I do get nostalgic like that at times.)
