  • Store Less, Spend Less: Managing Data According to Its Economic Value

    The term “big data” is now passing into the common vernacular. Although initially as much about the power of business analytics and data mining, the semantics have now swung to encapsulate data that is just big and of course, resource hungry, whether in terms of management, sheer storage capacity, or budgets. In that respect, the numbers are getting increasingly alarming: Estimates suggest that 90% of the world’s information was created in the last two years, and 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created daily. Download this informative whitepaper to gain further insights into the conflicting demands of storage management.
