The Didget Management System wants to change all that by introducing a new object storage model designed to replace file systems. A Didget (Data Widget) is like a file that can contain any unstructured data stream up to 16 TB in length, but it is also like a row in a NoSQL database table where lots of searchable structured tags can be attached to it. Structured and unstructured data can be stored side-by-side within the same container and both types can be returned as the result of a query. Note: this is NOT like other indexing systems like Spotlight or Windows Search. See the 5 minute video demo at http://screenr.com/XV17.
Is the ability to instantly find "All photographs taken in Hawaii in 2011" when there are 100 of them among 5 million other pieces of data, enough for you to want to replace your file system with something new?"
