Storing And Consolidating Your Data

All That Data: It Has To Go Somewhere

Mass effect it all has to go somewhere

Word is that the internet is filling up. Okay so that might be a stretch, but is it really? About a year ago the internet gurus from around the globe realized that when you open a website, take up room, host something or do anything else on the net, it takes up space. Not a ton of space but enough that slowly but surely all that information becomes a giant mess that has to go somewhere. But where does it go, how much of that space is being wasted and what can be done about it to solve the issue, and really is it a real issue?

Squeeze it into place

IT research and advisory firm Gartner has released a study saying that nearly 50% of the world’s data will find its way into cloud storage. As the benefits of cloud computing has grown, so has the solutions to problems that face big business as well as the personal user. If the internet was “running out of space” before, cloud computing has opened up a whole new world of solutions to “fix” it. Apple ‘s iCloud, Microsoft has Skydrive, Google has burst onto the scene with its App engine and then the plethora of smaller companies out there all offering storage, the idea of running out of space seems rather farfetched now. If 50% of the world’s data is going to be on a cloud (multiple clouds) does that mean there is no room for the other 50%?

Growing trends

PaaS is expanding faster than any other area of cloud computing. People want to use PaaS for everything under the sun. Application Development is at 22%, Database Management is staggering 48.5% Business intelligence 38.9 % and infrastructure is at 26.5%. Those are growth rates, huge and massive in scale. Making it not hard to believe that half the world’s data would end up being stored in clouds, as we expend we expect the cloud services not to just expand with us, but to expand faster then what we need. (isn’t that how we got into the limited space problem to begin with?) Economy still rules the cloud computing business model, if we can afford it, we have shown that we want it. But if it is just data storage that we are looking for then the mass hole could easily switch to free storage and crush the cloud computing environment.

This is why

Come the end of the year the guess around the globe is that cloud computing is going to be valued at more than 37 billion dollars. Billions of dollars that is a real lot of money for a market that still has not even hit its stride yet and more importantly a market that not everyone is using yet, but everyone could be using for different needs. It is rare that something like cloud computing comes along and can tap into such a massive market. Cloud computing is only going to grow, much like the space we use on the internet and how much room we need to store out programs and files on cloud computing. Put into play how much business can be improved with cloud computing as a whole and your going to quickly see the changes in how the market handles this space issue.
