Data is being generated at a faster rate now than ever before. IDC has predicted that in 2025, there will be 163 zettabytes of data generated each year—a massive increase from the 16.1 zettabytes created in 2016. These high rates of data generation are partially an outcome of the multitude of sensors found on Internet of Things (IoT) devices, the majority of which are capable of recording data many times per second. IHS estimates that the number of IoT devices in use will increase from 15.4 billion devices in 2015 to 75.4 billion in 2025, indicating that these immense rates of data generation will continue to grow even higher in the years to come.
