Recently, I came across a very interesting infographic that exhibited ‘What happens on the Web in 60 seconds’. The Infographic showcased that in just a minute, we create thousands of terabytes of data which is an incredible feat in itself. Add enterprise data to it and the number shoots up exponentially. That’s the thing about data – it is only going to grow, and will continue to grow at breakneck speed.
Today, every organization from a start-up to a large enterprise is grappling with the challenges of data growth and the subsequent management of the storage of that data and its associated costs. With the continuous advent of new technologies and more efficient storage devices, companies are continuously looking to move data from old to new platforms, whether they be local or to the cloud.
