Submission + - NSA building yottabyte data centre (

rbrander writes: "James Bamford, author of "The Puzzle Palace" and NSA-watching journalist for many decades, notes in a recent article in Politico that the NSA is building a $2B, 1-million-sq.ft. data centre in Utah expected to eventually hold one "Yottabyte" of data.

In contrast to previous NSA focus on foreigners, the bulk of it will probably be data about Americans."
