in reply to high array values

Interesting! Let's see:

  • If each array value is only 1 byte, the 10^18 bytes are 10^6 Terabytes.
  • I think we currently have hard disks of maximum capacity of 5TB, so we need 200,000 of those.
  • 5W power consumption when idle make 1MW idle power consumption as a minimum.
  • If we can transfer 6Gbit/s ~ 0.75TB/s, then writing the data will take ~16days.
So probably not.

Let's not discuss the 1000 vs 1024 issue.
