From my understanding, the process of analysis consumes a lot of CPU but the storage of the results is quite small.
At its simplest, there is a board score for each half move, showing the state of play. Where alternates are provided (which is much more useful), its a list of moves from that point.
I don't see that text and those numbers being a lot of storage.
The graphing is on the fly from the numbers.
