I heard an analyst recently quote a stat that by 2015, over 80% of storage capacity sold worldwide will be shipped in support of file-level or ‘unstructured’ data. That is file-based information that doesn’t fit neatly in a column-and-row database. Audio, video, graphics, and all of the other content we Facebook and Twitter about are good examples. If you can’t fit all of this neatly in a database, then you need a file system to make order out of the chaos and sit above the low-level disk operations.
