The data that enterprises are acquiring, managing, and storing is growing exponentially mainly due to unstructured data – emails, spreadsheets, text, graphics, video, audio – to ensure compliance, improve productivity, and create new revenue. These data streams are exploding at an estimated annual growth rate of 80 percent as per Gartner’s IT Market Clock for Storage from 2011. IDC also expects the amount of storage capacity deployed to store the explosion of new content will increase sixfold in the next three years (stated in a 2012), exacerbating the challenges around data management, protection, and preservation.
