In 1956, IBM’s Data Processing Division in southern San Jose, CA transported the first hard-drive that only held a whopping 5 megabytes of storage.

The hard-drive pictured above, most likely the IBM Model 305 RAMAC, only had room to hold 6 copies of that actual image. The hard-drive wasn’t even available for purchase — a company could lease the storage for around $3,200 a month, the equivalent of $28,000 today when you account for inflation.
