Think of the data stored by Amazon, iTunes, Medical Research, Hospitals, Office 365, Google Apps, etc – there will only be a bigger need as more activities move to the cloud. Some of the companies enabling the storage and access include Amazon (S3), Isilon, Salesforce (we store lots of data in their cloud as a CRM), etc.
