Wanted: 40 trillion gigabytes of open storage, stat!



Gigabytes and terabytes are so passé. It’s soon going to be a zettabyte world thanks to all the digital data—images, books, music, movies, video, documents, maps, you name it—that we collect and engage with throughout our lives.

Research Of gigabytes

Industry research firm IDC predicts a 50-fold increase in the total amount of digitally stored data between 2010 and 2020. This means that in the next seven years, the world’s total data footprint will reach 40 zettabytes (that’s 40 trillion gigabytes), and every man, woman and child on the planet will account for some 5.2 terabytes of data whether in the cloud or local storage.

Lots Of gigabytes

That’s a lot of ones and zeroes, and, unfortunately, help is not on the way in the form of some high-tech, sci-fi breakthrough. To wit: Holographic storage will not bail us out in the next seven years. Nope, between now and 2020, the heavy lifting will be done by that venerable mainstay of storage—the mechanical hard drive. And, yes, USB flash drives, SSDs (solid-state drives), optical drives, and even tape backup systems will also remain in play.

None of these technologies is poised for a revolution, but we should see some interesting evolution in various hardware areas. So let’s take a peek at the incremental technology improvements that will help humankind reach that magic 40 zettabyte mark.

  1. Searching for 40-designed things for any birthday in June. To date, he’s obtaining the movie “40 Years Old Virgin,” a 40-ounce cup…require more ideas please

  2. Someone is attempting to inform me that 40 + 40 * = 40… since you prioritize the multiplication and do 40 * first, then that equals and you simply possess the 40 in-front left being an added remainder.

    I believe this really is Baloney. I understand that you simply do that whenever you will find parenthesis involved, however that simple equation simply equals .
