Data is everywhere today. Data is even more valuable than oil. Think about the phone you have in your hand right now. There are hundreds of applications running on your phone with built-in backup settings to preserve, learn, and monitor your data.

You might have even come to expect your data to regularly be available to you no matter where you are or what data format it is in. Many people utilize (and hoard) their stored data for sharing and work purposes every day. However, keeping data persistent, accessible, and most importantly secure, is not a trivial task.
