According to the International Data Corporation (IDC) [1] the universe of digital data will grow 40% a year over the next decade, expanding to include the increasing number of people or enterprises going online, but also all the IoT expected information.World Data Growth and Backup 1

Conforming to the same study, the total amount of digital data created worldwide more than doubles every two years. It will grow from 4.4 zettabytes in 2013 to 44 zettabytes by 2020 and 10 zettabytes by 2025. Just for illustration, 1 zettabyte is equal to 1 trillion gigabytes. This astounding growth comes from both the number of devices generating data as well as the number of sensors in each device and 80 percent of it is stored at enterprise data centers at some point, requiring backup and other security mechanisms for information maintenance.

In this scenario, using an enterprise backup software that charges per gigabyte is very likely to be unaffordable, leading to undesired solution migration or lack of support in the long term. Also, advanced backup data reductions techniques are required in order to maintain backup retention and costs at reasonable levels.
