Welcome to the July edition of the Storage magazine e-newsletter, which as ever includes a wide range of features, opinions and case studies from all corners of the storage map. Actifio's CEO Ash Ashutosh argues that, for all the marketing hype around Big Data, most organisations have a far larger and potentially more impactful issue with copy data - unnecessary duplicates of test and production databases, email threads and attachments, and the like.

According to IDC around 60% of what is stored in a typical data centre is effectively copy data. Does that make it redundant? In our next print edition we will feature an interview with Ash going into more detail on why this is such a big issue for data centres today; don't miss it!
