So you've 'seen' the black hole. Now for the interesting bit – how all that raw data was stored • The Register

The black hole image released yesterday needed over a thousand helium-filled disk drives to record it.

Regular drives were tried and tested but failed due to air pressure at the high altitudes of the radio telescope sites.
That is indeed particularly interesting. SSDs were ruled out due to cost and capacity.
