Do you know how many photos are shared on Instagram by users every year? About 22billion photos. Wow, a really powerful and big server is needed.
Now let’s print all these photos that people send to this visual social network. All the photos of this year would reach thousands of miles if they are printed. To zip past the Empire State Building you’ll need the stack of printed photos of just 37 minutes. To climb the Mount Everest, photos of 12 hours is enough.
What about the outer edge of the Earth’s atmosphere? The answer is six Instagram days!
Now just imagine the giant servers of Google that their task is indexing almost every web page existing on the net.
