Data growth is exploding. Data creation is expected to reach a staggering 180 zettabytes by the year 2025 — that’s 118.8 zettabytes more than in 2020. As the volume of data we produce increases exponentially so do the demands on data storage.
Enterprises are producing larger and larger amounts of data and as they deploy more IoT, edge and 5G devices the volume is only likely to increase.
This puts more pressure on storage capacity which has the potential to be an inhibiting factor in digital transformation. We spoke to Dr Tong Zhang, co-founder and chief scientist at ScaleFlux, to learn more about the importance of storage to enterprise IT plans and infrastructure.
