Ed Goring passed on an amazing set of statistics a few days ago in relation to our data centre project. The rise of Big Data is predicted to see data centre capacity to undergo massive growth over the next few years, from 0.79 zetabytes of data in 2009 to 35 zetabytes in 2020.

This really does underline the size of the opportunity in both real estate and IT terms as business moves fully into the Cloud over the next few years.

To misquote the late Roy Scheider in Jaws; we’re going to need a bigger data centre.
