Challenges exist on the technology side, also. The optimal application of mass storage, high performance processors, and high speed networks to the task of providing faster, cheaper, and easier access to mass data requires that strategies for using parallel and multiple processing be developed, data compression techniques be evaluated, overall latencies within the system be minimized, advantage be taken of the Internet for sharing resources, etc. In the case of latencies, for example, ten second startup and communication latencies are of little consequence to a five hour task, but a severe bottleneck for a one second task.
