Re: Selective Storage
I absolutely agree, the amount of data expected to be pulled from these devices will no doubt need a strong storage solution with redundency.  But as data stores (and polls) get bigger, is tape really the best option, what about cloud storage with full redundency, as the amount of processing power to actually dig through these files would no doubt need a full-on data mining/analysis capability, which may be more efficient when you integrate the storage into the actual processing.

Selective Storage
Great point.  Is it possible that as the data science field becomes more defined, we will have a better grasp on which pieces of data are valuable (signal) and which are not (noise)?  I would imagine that as that becomes more defined we can be more selective with regards to which pieces of data we keep and which we discard.

Either way, additional storage options are needed.  Great article, thanks.
