In the given time period DS-200B accounted for 181 million records; DS-300 is INCENSER, another GCHQ cable-tapping operation: see the Washington Post article How we know the NSA had access to internal Google and Yahoo cloud data, 4 November 2013.
This presentation gives an overview of the NSA’s programmes targeting the fibre optic cables that carry much of the world’s internet traffic. One slide gives a breakdown of which data sources form the basis of Presidential daily briefings.

Slides detailing RAMPART cable accesses were published by the Intercept on 18 June 2014: see the Washington Post article How we know the NSA had access to internal Google and Yahoo cloud data, 4 November 2013.
