The Data Explosion

According to IDC the information created in 2006 was 161 billion gigabytes. This is equivalent to 3 million times the information stored in every book every published. And the amount of data created is growing every year. This is going to continue to put pressure on individuals and more pressingly, businesses. With the requirements placed on public companies to store information this has the possibility of taxing even the largest storage systems. As the old saying goes “something has to give.”
