Executive Summary

Internet Archive wanted to build a server infrastructure to support massive amounts of web data - 2 PB of storage, growing by 1 PB per year and provide an efficient, reliable, and scalable datacenter. The challenge was to keep space, energy, management and maintenance costs low. Internet Archive chose the Sun Modular Datacenter, Sun Fire Open Storage Servers and the Solaris 10 Operating System for its massive data storage needs - 2 PB and growing - and to support up to 500 queries per second. The organization is investing in a Sun solution to gain reliability and scalability by building a datacenter that can be set up quickly and that significantly reduces space, energy, management, and maintenance needs.
