Scale-out storage was originally developed to address the challenges associated with rapid data growth. Now, mobile, big data, and social applications are creating data at ever-faster rates, with the amount of information stored doubling every year. Data is now more active throughout the lifecycle and is retained longer. Analytics is driving decision-making and providing competitive advantage long after the initial transaction is complete.
