My last post on Big Data was way back February 3, 2013! This weekend I hope to continue on Big Data posts and post it by early next week,
However this evening I stumbled upon a new infographic related to my Big Data post posted February 3, 2013. In that post I wrote about the volume of data that is increasing exponentially on an annual basis and to give you an idea of how that is developing in two infographics, courtesy of the online storage site Mozy, and Cisco to help you visualise the meaning of pentabytes of data and how it expands further into zettabytes sometime into the future.
Well, by end of 2016, the world according to Cisco’s Visual Networking Index, will cross the Zettabyte threshold largely contributed by video streaming, phone lines or video calling and mobile streaming accelerated via extremely fast Internet speeds and data transfers.
The following infographic is a visual of how big zettabytes will be.
