Barence writes “According to a Dell briefing given to PC Pro, 90% of company data is written once and never read again. If Dell’s observation about dead weight is right, then it could easily turn out that splitting your data between live and old, fast and slow, work-in-progress versus archive, will become the dominant way to price and specify your servers and network architectures in the future. ‘The only remaining question will then be: why on earth did we squander so much money by not thinking this way until now?’” As the writer points out, the “90 percent” figure is ambiguous, to put it lightly.
