20TB?

Things have moved on a bit since I started programming on ICL mainframes. They had 20MB drives. The covers for the removable disc packs made excellent garden cloches....

I keep looking at these increasingly arcane schemes to squeeze more onto a disc and wondering how resilient they are. Evidence says not so much, so thank heavens for raid arrays and cheaper SSDs.
