« 2012: A Good Year In Storage For EMC | Main | Software-Defined Storage And The Potential For Disruption »

February 08, 2013



Hi there,
Great post; very insightful. I think, in my opinion, we're heading towards uncharted waters in the next couple of years. The truth is at no time in history have companies had this kind of access to big data. In what concrete ways do you think big data will help revolutionize the business field in the future?

How big is a peta byte really? One giga byte is a billion bytes. Tera byte is a trillion. Peta is how much? Saying that 1 Peta byte is equal to 20 million "four-drawer" filing cabinets and 13.3 years of HD-TV video does not quantify the term in exact amounts.
