Data volumes are exploding. As developers build ever more complex applications powered by technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning, the data demands continue to grow staggeringly. IDC predicts that by 2025, the global datasphere will reach 175 zettabytes. Meeting these massive data demands is an increasingly complex challenge, especially for developers.
Managing enormous volumes of structured and unstructured data across on-premise and multi-cloud environments has become an unwieldy task that eats into the time developers spend building applications. Data needs to be stored, secured, accessed, analyzed, and processed quickly to power today’s data-driven applications. Doing this efficiently at scale is no easy feat.
