Exactly, Al. Terabyte has now seemed to have become a real buzzword in the
PC industry - possibly Microsoft making such a fuss of large maps of the
earth being processed by SQL Server has made it fashionable.
Large data collection over a period of a few hours are not uncommon - take
submarine detection using multiple sonar buoys - there's a sim that
generates a LOT of data. Processed real-time it isn't too bad - it's only
when you think of sifting through it afterwards that it seems a lot.
