Youtube Storage Costs Per Year

Can You Calculate Cost of Youtube?

It’s just wondering how much Google facing costs for Youtube running, and we can figure it out.

Storage:

Youtube says “60 hours of video are uploaded every minute, or one hour of video is uploaded to YouTube every second”.
If we choose a 4 minute video for statics then

37 : mp4 [1080x1920]
22 : mp4 [720x1280]
45 : webm [720x1280]
35 : flv [480x854]
44 : webm [480x854]
34 : flv [360x640]
18 : mp4 [360x640]
43 : webm [360x640]
5 : flv [240x400]

Total size of all formats is 340 MB of storage for a 4 minute video.

We will assume that not all videos have HD format and come in far fewer size options (in fact, probably a minority have HD video), so let’s say its about half that: 160 MB for a four-minute video (to make my calculation a bit easier to follow.)

Total storage for 1 minute = 160 MB / 4 minutes = 40 MB/min
Total storage for 1 hour = 40 MB/min x 60 mins = 2400 MB = 2.4 GB

As per Youtube stats, 1 hour of video is being uploaded every second, so 2.4 GB of video is uploaded every second.

> 86400 seconds/day = 207.36 TB / day
> 365 days/year = 75.686 PB / year

Approximately 76 PB of video data is stored in Youtube every year.
At the time of writing, 2 TB hard drives cost approximately $130 or less.

So

76 PB x $50 / TB = $3,784,320 on storage costs = $3.8 million in storage costs

The result is approximately $4 million in storage costs per year, using commodity hard drives.

*Its a calculation and we can not say that this calculation is accurate.
