80,000,000 hours is 476,190 weeks or 109,516 months or 9,126 years or 912 decades.
Can someone familiar with this type of processing comment on the type of hardware it would take to run this in 3 years?
Also, given the processing time I'm really surprised at the low amount of storage that was used. 250TB isn't that much. Makes me curious what kind of throughput was used on their storage arrays. Even if you had the kind of processing power required to process 9,126 years of data in 3 I'd imagine it would be very I/O heavy. The IOPS on the disk arrays are equally impressive as the processing power itself.
