Governmental and educational organizations are facing relentless data storage growth driven by many different factors. Perhaps foremost among these are compliance with regulations on data retention, privacy and e-discovery, with increased digital imaging of public documents to ease compliance. Organizations also face the difficulty of determining what data can be disposed of, which can lead to a "Keep everything, delete nothing" strategy. Other high growth factors include the rise of video surveillance and the growing importance of e-learning and e-books in education.
