Use less storage, says HP!

Big data is one of the big topics of the day with no shortage of statistics and predictions illustrating just how much data we will have to manage in the near future. Some of the organisations I speak to expect the amount of data they generate to double in just the next twelve months. For a storage guy, this sounds like great news, because not only is the volume of data increasing exponentially, but so is the velocity and variety of that data. And all of it will need to be stored, right? Not necessarily. What interests me is whether we can reach a point where the rate of data generation is continuing to increase, but the storage capacity trajectory is slowing down…and maybe even decreasing.

Big Data or What?

Another evening in the airport, heading out into the big wide world. Thanks to British Airways  for a nice selection of red wine, cheese and biscuits this evening!! Just struck me that I haven’t touched on Big Data yet. Somewhat weird for a storage guy to leave by the wayside I hear you murmur.  In short I think we’re all still trying to define and self-diagnose the term – what the hell is it?
