So the headline goes like this: “IoT will propel digital universe past 40ZB by 2020”

Let’s first gather what 40ZB looks like.

40,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (all them zeros!) Or 40 sextillion as it’s more commonly known.

Now IDC in a slightly older report said that only 99.5% of newly created data is ever mined and processed.That’s still a lot of data (2 sextillion if anyone’s taking note).

Count me in….. somehow.
