IA's web archives now exceed 5PBs of data (compressed) and encompass over 370 billion captures collected from 1996 to the present culled from every domain, over 200 million web sites and 100+ languages. This archival database expands with the Internet, and so grows by ~200TBs (compressed) every month. Usage of IA's web collections via the Wayback machine supports up to 10 thousand requests per second.
