The Internet Archive hosts unbelievable amounts of data, and stores something like 150,000,000,000 URLs and the associated data for these addresses. There has been a campaign pushing for donations so that they could expand their storage and store even more Internet history.

The Internet Archive have now announced they've almost doubled their storage, giving them the capacity to store some 240,000,000,000 (that's 240 billion) URLs - this works out to just over 5 petabytes of storage. All of this data gives you the ability to walk down the Internet Archives' Wayback Machine, cranking the dial all the way back to 1996 all the way up to last month.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
