Internet of Things
The phenomenon of connected machines is sometimes called the Internet of
Things, the Internet of Anything, the Internet of Everything, or M2M
(machine to machine). But no matter what the name, the growth of technology
related to objects, which never before were network- and computer-enabled,
is projected to have far-reaching technological, societal, and economic
The strongest examples of the impact of the Internet of Things are in the
industrial sector. Embedded software, sensors, and network connectivity
promises to improve the way factories, data centers, oil wells, and cities,
airplanes, cars, and even homes are maintained because data can be collected
continuously with alerts issues proactively to prevent failures and outages.
According to Cisco's Internet Business Solutions Group, 50 billion devices
will be connected by 2020, up from 2010's 12.5 billion. By 2020, data
production will be 44 times greater than it was in 2009, and by 2020, more
than one-third of the data produced will live in or pass through the cloud,
according to Computer Sciences Corp.

More "things" are now connected to the internet than people, a phenomenon dubbed The Internet of Things. Fueled by machine-to-machine (M2M) data, the Internet of Things promises to make our lives easier and better, from more efficient energy delivery and consumption to mobile health innovations where doctors can monitor patients from afar. However, the resulting tidal wave of machine-generated data streaming in from smart devices, sensors, monitors, meters, etc., is testing the capabilities of traditional database technologies. They simply can't keep up; or when they're challenged to scale, are cost-prohibitive.
