Data is exploding, growing 10X every five years. In 2008, IDC projected that over 800 Exabytes (one million terabytes) of digital content existed in the world and that by 2020 that number is projected to grow over 35,000 Exabytes. What's fueling the growth? Unstructured digital content. Over 90% of all new data created in the next five years will be unstructured digital content, namely video, audio and image objects.
