This month we at TransferXL crossed our first 100 TB of transfers in terms of data. That is the equivalent of 20,000 DVDs.
If we were to ship this in the real world it would amount, at the weight of 20 grams per DVD, to 400 kilo of DVDs. At a cost of € 0.40 per DVD it would set you back a total of € 8000 on just the DVDs alone.
Shipping it using FedEx from the Netherlands to Switzerland would cost approximately € 2300.
As it is today, we are still offering a free service so we are not charging this on you. Note that we will be launching a pro subscription account in the near future, so stay tuned.
In the mean time we will be looking forward to our next milestone of 1 PB (and yes, you can then add a zero to each of the figures above).
