For skeptics of the "putting all your eggs in one basket" strategy, history shows that building fewer, sturdier baskets can create strategic advantage. Take a look at the construction of airplanes. Bigger planes create economies of scale that make flying safer, faster, and more efficient. Oil shipments also move more safely and cost-effectively in double-hulled, automation-packed tankers than on large fleets of small craft. Data storage is simply another successful application of this consolidation strategy.
