Funny thing is, there was an episode of Last Week Tonight a few years ago dedicated to gov surveillance in which section 215 was talked about.
You americans should take heart in the fact this time around there was at least an attempt made to reduce the broad powers it gives government agencies, unlike the last time it came up...

Funnier thing is, with your citation of John Oliver, the fact that the Brits don't even bother to hide it.

Terabytes of data are incoming on a daily basis, probably petabytes per week. Do they employ exotic storage and processing solutions/tech that aren't available to the business/consumer world? Or just gigantic HPC and NAS clusters using the best components available now? The power use of such facilities must be ginormous, do they have their own power plants separate from the consumer grid?
I would assume they have the technology and minds behind the scenes to filter this content efficiently. If all data was stored, indefinitely, the facility would be insane. But if there is a small retention period (define small for FBI lol) and they can filter out all the memes and reaction videos... it's probably quite feasible.
