2.5 quintillion bytes of data is generated every day, out of which 90% is unstructured, according to Forbes.

Wondering how?

Imagine you are on vacation. You made all of your reservations online by entering your data on numerous websites, starting with the airline tickets, reserving a place to stay, and reserving a car for your trip. When you arrive at the location, you check in with your identification card number and credit card number. You’re excited to see the new place, so you go out and take a million photos to share with your friends and family. Additionally, you visit various places for meals, participate in activities such as kayaking and scuba diving, and make card payments again by sharing your information.

Think of how much data a person generates and shares across multiple platforms, even if they are on vacation for only one day. Now imagine how much data the global population generates every day and how it is spread across different platforms. 

Fear of having a lot of unstructured data but not knowing how to manage it is real, isn’t it?

Dealing with unstructured data is like dealing with a black hole of unknown possibilities and risks. You have no clue what’s in there and what you must prepare for. Furthermore, you are completely oblivious to sensitive information that’s residing in the sprawl and have no way of securing it. As a result, effective data management is necessary for the acquisition, storage, and protection of data in an organization. Cloud computing is the best enabler to provide optimum data management for unstructured data sprawls. Reduced IT infrastructure costs are one of the most prominent reasons companies switch to the cloud. IT leaders can just right-size computer resources based on specific business needs in the cloud, reducing wasted spending. The cloud also provides storage tiers to store large amounts of data strategically and cost-effectively, enhances data security, governance, and accessibility improves data analytics through increased integration and ingestion, and increases data quality. 

Thus, it’s no surprise that every company wants to migrate its data to the cloud to enable better data management!

Now here’s the billion-dollar question – how do you migrate such large amounts of unstructured data to the cloud in the simplest way possible?

Here’s your answer-
