Amazing Growth in Data Requires Innovative New Solutions

  • Amazing Growth in Data Requires Innovative New Solutions-

    In 2012, 2.72 zettabytes of data were stored in the "digital universe." By the end of this year, that number is estimated to reach 8 ZBs. That means, in a three-year period, we'll have roughly tripled what it took to generate from the beginning until 2012.

    In 2012, 2.72 zettabytes of data were stored in the "digital universe." By the end of this year, that number is estimated to reach 8 ZBs. That means, in a three-year period, we'll have roughly tripled what it took to generate from the beginning until 2012.

File data is growing at an exponential rate. While that isn't exactly breaking news for most observers, the rate at which data is growing still boggles the mind. Devices, applications and users all store more data than ever before, and for a variety of reasons – including compliance and analytics – data is rarely deleted.

But with technical challenges come new technologies, and, in this case, emerging enterprise storage that harnesses the power of cloud has stepped in to overcome these challenges. In this slideshow, Nasuni, a provider of Cloud NAS, will highlight the amazing growth in file data and what is being done to take control of this rapid expansion.
