According to market researcher IDC, the total amount of digitally stored data is expected to reach 40 Zettabytes by 2020, a 50-fold increase since 2010.
Managing these huge volumes of data creates a huge challenge for businesses and IT executives. In turn, this explosion of data creates a giant opportunity for solution and strategic service providers.
