Google computer storage - Original one

Ever wondered where Google used to store the data and develop its algorithms?
Here are some pics of Google's oldest computer provided by the NSF-DARPA-NASA-funded Digital Library project at Stanford.

An enormous amount of storage was required for crawling the web to obtain its link structure. The pics shows the original storage assembly, containing ten 4Gb disk drives, giving 40Gb in total.

They definitely need more than 40 GB of space to store all the crawled information now...

But, maybe back then, it was enough for beginning.

Nice find! Thanks!
