My friend Dan Gatti who runs worldwide marketing at Verari sent me this picture showing the inside of a FOREST Data Center Scale computer rigged out with 26 Petabytes of disk storage. Verari are market leaders in Data Center Scale compute platforms and have shipped significantly more of these storage and compute units than other vendors in this space. Verairi’s patented vertical cooling enables the absolute highest density configurations whilst maintaining proper operation of the equipment and low cooling costs.

I wonder if this is the highest density storage platform on the planet? I am keen to hear from Hot Aisle readers.
