Experts predict a 4,300 percent increase in annual data production by 2020.

With Expanding IT Infrastructure, Companies Turn to Data Centers

It is rare to come across someone who doesn’t own some type of smart device — whether that is a smartphone, tablet, or watch.

The increase in popularity of these devices over the past few years has enabled users to access the internet from nearly anywhere and send data at an accelerated rate. Due to this immense data growth, experts predict a 4,300 percent increase in annual data production by 2020.

While this data growth can come with challenges, it also presents great business opportunities. According to IT services company CSC, while the majority of the digital universe is generated by individuals, enterprises have responsibility for the storage, protection, and management of 80 percent of it.

Take Facebook and Twitter for example. Facebook had a daily active user average of 1.18 billion for September 2016, an increase of 17 percent year-over-year. Twitter manages an average of 6,000 tweets per second. Just imagine how much data these platforms are pulling in each day with that much activity. That’s where CyrusOne steps in.

As business leaders navigate today’s explosion of applications and data, they face challenges, threats, and risks at every turn. To keep up with the expanding IT infrastructure, companies look at data centers to store their information safely and securely. While some companies may choose to build their own data centers, that approach is outdated.
