CBL Pictures: Gigabyte to Terabytes

For fun, here is a comparison of some old storage media with something in our data recovery lab right now.

a 1 GB IBM 3380 from 1980 and a RAID array case in our data recovery lab today 48TB

On the left is an IBM 3380 ‘direct storage access device’ circa 1980. Capacity: 1 GB.

On the right, a RAID recovery on one of our lab workbenches, set up in a couple of storage cases.
Capacity: 48 TB.

The cases and the old IBM device are about the same size… ~30cm across, but of course 30 years difference.
