Who would have thought that Facebook would store more images than many dedicated photo sharing sites?
The community-oriented Web company says it now stores 10 billion photographs uploaded by its members -- and, as it stores each photo in four different sizes, it actually has 40 billion image files.
Facebook adds that:2-3 Terabytes of photos are uploaded each day;
It has more than one petabyte of photo storage;
It serves more than 15 billion photo images per day;
Photo traffic peaks at more than 300,000 images served per second.
