Seagate Provides 500k GB for NBC during Olympics

Seagate announced this week that it will be providing half a million gigabytes of storage for NBC's coverage of the Olympics, set to occur between August 8th to 24th. Everything will be stored on Seagate's Barracuda ES hard drives, which back up the network's Omneon MediaDeckmedia servers and MediaGridactive storage systems. NBC's coverage of the games will amount to three times that of their 2004 Athens Olympics, which is estimated to be around 3,600 hours.
