Digital Universe and the Cloud
The Internet, as we know it, is a huge cloud powered by huge number of data centers. The rising trend of cloud computing means better utilization of the data centers, and – in effect – will have businesses and individuals to bring a large portion of data to the cloud.
“By 2020, a significant portion of the Digital Universe will be centrally hosted, managed, or stored in public or private repositories that today we call ‘cloud services.’ And even if a byte in the Digital Universe does not ‘live in the cloud’ permanently, it will, all likelihood, pass through the cloud at some point in its life.” – IDC
