The digital universe is doubling every two years, and it will grow from 4.4 trillion gigabytes to 44 trillion gigabytes between 2013 and 2020. Accordingly, finding a way to manage this influx of data is now a top priority on every IT and storage manager’s list. Despite the rising pressures of burgeoning data and business demands for faster data access, storage is still largely relegated to a “commodity” role in the data center.

The survey showed that greater attention is being placed on whether this storage is as optimized and well managed as it could be.
