Amount of data increases, deal with it

Each year, more and more data is stored into different information systems. In some cases, the amount of data increases by the factor of two or more from the previous year. When George W. Bush left the White House, 140 terabytes of data (1 TB = 1000 GB) was transferred to the U.S. National Archives. That's 50 times the amount of data that accumulated during Clinton's presidency. After Obama's presidency, the amount of data they need to store probably reaches petabytes (1 PB = 1000 TB).

Queen of the Mountain

Namaste! In April and May of this year, I spent almost a month trekking and climbing in the Himalayas. The idea sprang from my passion for mountains and a desire to brush up on my old Scout memories. The trip was a true breakaway from my hectic daily life: for example, my phone didn’t work in the rugged mountains.
