How big is internet?

How much space or, better to say, how many hard-discs do you need to dump all the internet content?
According to wikipedia, the Internet Archive contained about 5.8 petabytes of data as of December 2010 and because it was growing at the rate of about 100 terabytes per month in March 2009, we can assume that now is about 7.8 petabyes.

Do not forger that 1 petabyte is 1024 terabytes!
Big eh?
