According to projections pulled together by CenturyLink, we're in for a deluge of big data. By 2015, CenturyLink says that we'll see a four-fold increase in data being created and replicated. This year, CenturyLink projects that 1.8 zettabytes of data will be created. By 2015, the projection is 7.9 zettabytes. The biggest contributor to all this data is video, which is expected to be 50% of consumer Internet traffic by the end of 2012. The funny thing about data creation is that users aren't even aware of a lot of the data they produce. All of that data has to go somewhere, and even though the cost per GB has dropped (until recently) to one-sixth of what it was in 2005, the capital expenditures for handling data has grown by 50% in the same time. Naturally, enterprises hold most of the data, whether it's created by consumers or by knowledge workers on company time.
