"In 2010 the volume of digital information created and duplicated in a year will reach 1.2 zettabytes, according to new data from IDC and EMC. The annual Digital Universe report is an effort to visualize the enormous amount of data being generated by our increasingly digital lives. The report's big numbers -- a zettabyte is roughly a million petabytes -- pose interesting questions about how the IT community will store and manage this firehose of data. Perhaps the biggest challenge isn't how much data we're creating -- it's all the copies of it. Seventy-five percent of all the data in the Digital Universe is a copy, according to IDC. "
