2. A navigation software company, that stores information on roads, postal codes and points of interest for PCs. PDAs and cell phones, struggles with how to manage, compress and search its collected data.

3. A very large operator of aircraft needs to store, manage, and analyze telemetry from its diverse fleet.

4. A market research company compiles information about an industry with more than one million outlets, each which dispense thousands of products. Under the current storage system, it's almost impossible to do detailed searches and when they are done, it takes a long time.
