Re: Zettabyte? Maybe not.
One sometimes comes across rash talk about collecting all the data in the world. I think there are logical reasons to suppose that that's simply impossible (infinite regression, especially when it comes to relational data--ask me later...). Even if it were possible, would it be useful.

Remember the tower of Babel?

Re: Zettabyte? Maybe not.
A lot of good sense being talked here. Things like the genome project might need enormous data storage, but for business--especially retail--there's a risk of generating vast quantities of white noise.

Re: Zettabyte? Maybe not.
Never mind zettabytes, what about yottabytes (yep, that's the next step up)?

Re: Gluttony
It was a good dinner, too.  I didn't even finish my strawberry cheesecake (which was one of the best I'd ever had).

"So much for that!  At what point will we need a cloud for the cloud?"

@Joe: that is an interesting question. At least that incident was not expected from a major cloud service provider. I am sure this incident will be quoted for quite a few times whenever cloud hosting proposal will be received to the enterprises. Because second to security, outage can become the major concern for them and such incident will not be helping.

Unfortunate that I used that word in the headline of a story which starts with a dinner!

Re: Zettabyte? Maybe not.
Indeed, Taimoor.  When you have that many drives, you have to expect failure every day or two.

Re: Zettabyte? Maybe not.
This is why data accessibility and integration is so important to the health and life sciences space right now.  They are dealing with HUGE data -- and much of it unstructured -- and they only expect it to get bigger and bigger as more advances are made in fields such as cancer research, brain mapping, and genomics.

So I'm not so sure that threshold comes pre-zettabyte, myself (or, for that matter, even pre-yottabyte!).

Re: Zettabyte? Maybe not.
The funny thing about this "paying per compute unit" logic is that, in the time since I wrote this article, RackSpace just had a major SSD outage because they didn't have enough space on their servers.

So much for that!  At what point will we need a cloud for the cloud?

Re: Zettabyte? Maybe not.
"Like SaaS I think IaaS has vast potential at the small to medium sized business market.  Those organizations don't want to be in the infrastructure business any more than they want to be in the application business."

@legalcio: I've always considered IaaS to be a natural extension of the SaaS and I think the only way companies would take a leap towards IaaS would be after they'r comfortable with SaaS. I do agree with you that medium to small-sized businesses have a lot of potential when it comes to new avenues for IaaS vendors.
