EMC’S products are often invisible which may mean you have never heard of them before but running through our daily activities is EMC innovation. By sending text messages, withdrawing money from a cash machine or simply buying lunch you create a digital trail that EMC’s technology is helping to store, manage, access and analyse and keep secure.

We are accessing data all of the time whether it be by music downloads, games, photos and videos and this is can all be before eating breakfast! Thinking about the amount of data we use as individuals you can imagine that businesses large or small need huge support day to day.  EMC Corporation is a global leader in enabling businesses and service providers to transform their operations and deliver IT as a service. Fundamental to this transformation is cloud computing.

Understanding data

We use data every single day and the amount of data we use is growing rapidly in fact by 2020 the digital universe will be 35.2 zettabytes, day to day we are used to dealing with gigabytes, the average mobile phone having 16 gigabytes of storage. A gigabyte is a billion bytes,  a terabyte is – it’s a trillion bytes so a zettabyte is a billion trillion … that’s 1 with 21 zeros after it.

What is creating the demand for data?

  • The systems we use are becoming more sophisticated, we have intelligent systems in cars, digital signage, smart meters, smart thermostats, medical monitors
  • Mobile phone usage continues to increase. According to the Economist, there are about 4.6 billion mobile phone subscriptions around the world.

Science and Technology

  • Stored medical records are growing 70% or more a year.
  • A typical hospital may have 300Terabytes of data to manage … while a large teaching hospital could have a petabyte or more.
  • A single MRI is about 65Megabyte.  Multiply that by the 16,000 MRI studies done each year by a hospital and you get to 74Terabyte.
  • Experiments at  Europe’s particle physics lab, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, generate 40Terabytes every second. 

Information has always been important, always been at the center of commerce and life. What’s new is that information is more fluid and mobile than ever. And there is a new understanding of the power of having and applying the right information at the right time.
