Default Is There a Source Control-like Backup Program?

it is possible. The only real question is how to scale that
approach up to handle commercial volumes of data and thruput and
the requirements of replication across multiple mirrored data
centers -- and who is to go after this convergence.


CERN is currently building a large nuclear accelerator which will
produce on the order of 1+GB/s of data. The next generation
accelerator after that will have even larger requirements.

It'd be interesting to see what type of solution(s) they come up with.

Parallel ones!

1GB/sec sounds impressive, but it's only 10 copies of a 100MB/sec
system, and *that* can be achieved with commodity hardware! (Not
trivially, but it can be done).
