I recently heard a worrying statistic : Itis predicted that by 2012, the amount of data being stored will double every 11hours. I have to say that I view this with a healthy dose of scepticism, butwhichever way you look at it, there’s still going to be a lot of data around.

Standard approaches of trying to deal with rapidlyexpanding data volumes have been met with relatively low levels of success –trying to get people to stop copying files to multiple different storagedevices, sending files to large distribution lists via email and getting peopleto only use centralized storage just doesnot match with people’s own ways of working, so we do tend to end up with largeduplicate amounts of data being stored.
