The cloud is everywhere, and adoption will continue at extraordinary rates. It should be no surprise that big data is driving much of this growth within the cloud industry. With all this data to organize, store, and transport, there are many innovations yet to come.
Below is a very interesting post from Cloud Tweaks that shows an infographic with big data predictions to the year 2023. It's pretty crazy to think about what is happening with technology in the next few years. We are excited for the future of IT.
Everything you do online from social networking to e-commerce purchases, chatting, and even simple browsing yields tons of data that certain organizations collect and poll together with other partner organizations. The results are massive volumes of data, hence the name “Big Data”. This includes personal and behavioral profiles that are stored, managed, and analyzed on demand.
Big Data is growing at an explosive rate. The best estimates suggest that at least 2.5 quintillion bytes of data is produced every day and Google processes roughly 3.5 billion requests per day. That is a lot of data transmission which requires a lot of storage space at the end of it.
Here is the big data predictions infographic courtesy of Open4u which focuses on the a number of Big Data trends and predictions over the next 5-10 years.
