Getting Loud on the Cloud
Getting Loud on the Cloud
Ep 7. All About Data

Losing business-critical data is not recoverable. Is your company a transformative organization, or are you simply keeping the lights on? I’m Ori Weizman, Sr. Solutions Architect for Silk, and your host for this episode.  I’ll be talking all things data, with a few doses of pop culture woven in for fun.

In this episode, I’ll not only share some mind-bending statistics about the amount of data that currently exists but how much our data will increase in the next decade. We’re currently in the “zettabyte era” but heading toward yottabytes, brontobytes, and even geobytes within the next ten years.  So I’m asking – are you prepared? The cloud, and multi-cloud systems, are the ONLY way to maintain your business-critical data.
