Is Object storage really appropriate for 100+ PB stores?

Glacier re-writes the rules

Amazon's Glacier (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/08/21/amazon_glacier_objjects/) seems to be a combination of object storage and spun down disks. It uses five data centres and will probably quite rapidly become the largest object storage implementation in the world. That will be a significant vote of confidence into object storage I think.

Chris.
