Turning Data Into Information

Posted Mar 02 2010 6:56pm

Perhaps the tile of this post should really be titled “The cost of making diamonds from coal.” It’s rare that I will comment on another HDSer’s blog but my colleague Pete Gerr’s blog on Storage for the 31st Century got me thinking.

IBM had a commercial awhile back in which they claimed that by 2020 half of the worlds data would be medical images, now I’m not going to debate the claim as I have been in far too many 450PB+ data centers to be a doubter. The real question we all need to ask is what is this data doing for us and can our care givers really access when they need it?
