ViaWest, a privately-held data center, cloud and managed services providers in North America, announces the release of two infographics which outline strategic resources for solving data storage issues along with the top IT challenges faced by CIOs today.

The new big data infographic shows the latest statistics on storage including implications of how big data will affect businesses in the future. IT Infirmity infographic outlines the biggest issues facing CIOs in 2012. The issues include the difficulties of finding and retaining skilled employees, minimizing IT outages, and the inability to focus on strategic goals.

Detailing today's storage issues and innovative data strategies, infographic Data Storage in the Era of big data notes how each day, 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created (one followed by 18 zeros), which is equivalent to 57.5 billion 32 GB iPads.
