> I’ve got a riddle for you. What’s the best way to move 1PB if data from one state to another
sneekernet, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sneakernet /a SSD sent via FedEx will honestly probably be the fastest.
If you really need to send it over the wire, then yeah, zfs send seems as good as anything else I can think of.
But I'll boost is case anyone else has brilliant insights.
@codesections @frostygoth Or several boxes of SSDs, but yeah. By my calculations, it will take 3 months to transfer 1 PB over a 1 gbps connection, _assuming_ you can maintain a perfect connection the whole time.
I have a lot of experience with shipping Pelican cases full of hard drives just because FedEx gives you way better bandwidth than most Internet connections.
@codesections Thanks! I figured shipping and then syncing was the best way to do it, but my buddy says it’s got to be done over the wire and uncompressed it’s gonna take like 93 days to happen.
