Click through for results from a digital universe study from International Data Corp., conducted on behalf of EMC.

Just about every IT organization is struggling with data storage requirements to one degree or another. A new annual Digital Universe study from International Data Corp., conducted on behalf of EMC, isn’t likely to make IT professionals feel any better about the problem, unless you consider that misery tends to love company.

Of course, even though no one IT organization is responsible for the 1.8 trillion gigabytes (1.8 zettabytes) that it is estimated will be created in 2015, it’s still an awesome number to contemplate. The bigger question may be how long it will be before we reach the storage management crisis that will inevitably be brought on by IT's inability to keep pace with what appears to be an insatiable appetite for storage. At the current rate of consumption, it's only a matter of time before the proverbial Digital Universe starts to collapse on its own weight.
