Companies Often Seek Big Data Solutions When Crossing 1 Petabyte Line

December 17, 2012


  • Companies with big data initiatives average two to ten times as much data under management as companies of their size typically average. 
  • Hitting 1 petabyte under management is a threshold; above that mark, many companies create a formal big data initiative. 
  • BTA Bottom Line: If you are rapidly approaching the 1PB mark, carefully evaluate where data growth is coming from and what you hope to accomplish using the data; you may need to create a big data initiative with high-level leadership to ensure that the business discovers the actionable information in the flood.
