Data Genomics Project

The Data Genomics Project

It is an initiative designed to change the way we think about managing data. Veritas founded the initiative to bring a community of like-minded data scientists, industry experts, and thought leaders together with the purpose of better understanding the true nature of the unstructured data that we are creating, storing, and managing on a daily basis. Our first contribution to the project is this inaugural benchmark report on real storage environments’ composition—the Data Genomics Index.

Over 8,000 of the most popular file type extensions were considered in the analysis. Generally, this data is a representative subset of the entire file system environment of a respective customer.
