The world is becoming ever-increasingly connected. With the ease of access to the internet, and our networks getting broader, we’re reaching greater numbers of people and creating amazing amounts of data. Every day, we are creating, analyzing, and storing data. It has become an integral part of life, with the dawn of the age of the internet. With massive amounts of information being created, re-created, modified, published, transferred, and shared, it’s hard to imagine how much of it is really out there. The total number of websites is now expected to exceed 1 billion in the coming year, and with that much information being added to the ever-increasing cloud, cloud storage and management as well as information technology are growing in importance, as well.
Large companies like Cisco and the International Data Corporation have spent lots of time compiling and analyzing years’ worth of data to determine a reasonably accurate figure of just how much data is already out there, traveling through our networks, data centers, servers, and the like each and every second, and how much more we can expect to come in our not-so-distant future. In the following infographic, you’ll find the high points of this research in an easy-to-read and easy-to-digest visual.
