Edge Computing: The Future of Data Storage

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.

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.

This increase is being fueled by several factors. First, the need to power a growing number of base stations—the fixed transceivers that serve as the main communication point for mobile technology like 5G (and even 6G)—is expected to boom as the technologies become more popular. According to a report by Allied Market Research, the 5G base station market is expected to reach over $190 billion dollars by 2030.
