The Internet is a vast sea of information that has literally come to change the way the world interacts. Just think that 30 years ago, most people did not know that such a thing could exist, now it runs much of our lives.
But could something so integral to our lives ever get fully shutdown?
It almost seems like a story out of a fictional drama bestseller where the world could go into chaos because of a end-of-world virus or some disastrous war. Yet, we saw a bit of the Internet go dark when a hurricane hit Virgina and the scenario became a little more real.
Here are some pieces of nuggets from the infographic below on what happened and predictions of what could happen with storms and the Internet:
- Amazon.com may hold 1% of the Internet data!
- 12 hurricanes have hit Virginia in the last 150 years where many cloud servers are stored, making it a potential liability.
- Cloud storage is growing along with the strenght of storms. Worst-case scenarios may be the lost of much of the online data as we know it.
What would you do if the Internet was gone for a day, week, or month!?!
