An anonymous reader writes “Computer scientists from the University of California, San Diego have broken the ‘terabyte barrier’ — and a world record — when they sorted more than a trillion bytes of data in 60 seconds. During this 2010 ‘Sort Benchmark’ competition, a sort of ‘World Cup of data sorting,’ the UCSD team also tied a world record for fastest data sorting rate, sifting through one trillion data records in 172 minutes — and did so using just a quarter of the computing resources of the other record holder.”
