4 TB Per Day Reached - Upgrade Planned

On January 9, 2012 our network reached 1 TeraByte of daily traffic for the first time. 16 months later we doubled that throughput and reached 2 TeraBytes of data per day.

In November of 2013, we reached 3 TeraBytes of data per day and, since everyone stayed home today and watched Netflix, today we reached 4 TeraBytes of traffic. This is double the traffic we were moving in May of last year.

In case you are wondering, we ordered new capacity in December in anticipation of growing network loads. This capacity is scheduled to come online on March 7. The new capacity will more than double the amount of traffic we can move each day. That's good because at the rate we are going, we may be moving as much as 8 TeraBytes per day by August 2014.
