Microsoft: Hotmail to Outlook.com transfer involved 150 petabytes

Microsoft revealed that the transfer of Hotmail to Outlook.com involved a whopping 150 petabytes of data. The software giant says the whole transfer only took six weeks to complete, further details can be read at Neowin.
But you may be saying to yourself: "just how big is 150 petabytes of data?". Sure, you might think that having a 4 TB hard drive inside your PC rig is a lot of storage but that's peanuts compared to the numbers that Microsoft had to deal with.

Thankfully, Microsoft has created a new infographic that gives us an idea of how much data really is contained in 150 petabytes. In the most basic of terms, it's a lot; really, it's a whole big bunch of data. As the infographic shows, it would take a person 300,000 years to listen to 150 petabytes of music on their media player.
