Big data is accelerating, now doubling in size every two years. In fact, global data is expected to reach 44 zettabytes (that’s 44 trillion gigabytes!) by 2020. And, with new opportunities to apply data to real-time apps and services, big data is no longer simply growing in volume – it’s also growing in velocity.

Today’s data is constantly in motion, traveling in and out of databases, to and from connected devices, and across continents, all in less than the blink of an eye. This evolution of real-time data requirements represents a huge opportunity for app providers because it can power everything from critical health monitoring to in-game betting, as well as many new and growing use cases for the Internet of Things. In fact, the ability to properly manage real-time data will be a critical element for IoT success in general.
