Data Explosion

I grabbed total database size numbers for the last year (in GB) from one test server.  Just multiply this by Production, Reporting, Training, Development, and Disaster Recovery: our 240GB just turned into 1.4TB (plus backups!).  Compare that to the 10GB/60GB from the previous year.

We seem to be ahead of the curve as far as the global data explosion goes.
