We all love data, the girls and boys at data genomics project help us to try understand the huge growth of data we all produce today. And keep in mind, that only 1/3 of the world population is online now.
Each company has it's own data sets. and the most common mistake companies make is, we need to safe and store everything, because with Big Data could even useless become useful. As company you need to identify crisp and clear which data you need to store and which data is absolutely useless.
the use of cold storage for back up is today not a question anymore. How fast do you need to recover the data is the question. The use of Meta Data is very useful in this case.
