The Internet of Things is already having a profound impact on the way we live our lives—both personally and in business. As we discussed in our blog about how the Internet of Things will affect data centers, this massive influx of connected devices is putting more and more pressure on companies to develop a storage solution to host all their data.
Understanding how the Internet of Things is affecting data centers, however, likely seems less relevant to most people than understanding what the Internet of Things is and how it works. If you’re still struggling to understand exactly what the IoT is all about, don’t worry—you’re not alone.
We recently stumbled upon an infographic about the Internet of Things that we think does a great job explaining what the IoT looks like here in 2014, and what it will look like in the future. For example, did you know that some predictions show that there will be 50 billion connected devices by 2020? For that fact and more, have a look at the infographic below, courtesy of Pacific East:
