Big data storage

Creating value with data

big data storage

The term Big data is essentially ways to analyse, systematically extract information and deal with data sets that are too large or complex to be dealt with by traditional data-processing application software. Enterprises understand that digital transformation is happening within and around their industries today. Data is value for a range of businesses, in financial services, healthcare, travel, M&E as well as government institutions. Maintaining an online repository of data in its native format is the right solution for extracting value from data over time. Therefore, Big Data stores must keep vast amounts of data, in a variety of formats – and make them accessible for analytics and multiple processing purposes.

DATA STORAGE FOR ANALYTICS

Most Data lakes are used by analytics applications such as Hadoop, Spark and the ecosystem tools.

For Hadoop type applications, the use of Hadoop Compatible File System (HCFS) protocols such as S3A have been adopted for access to data lakes, such as employed in public cloud services such as AWS EMR.

The Scality RING provides and scalable, high-performance, online data lake for access by these applications over S3A.

Furthermore, Big data analytics helps healthcare improve personalised medicine and prescriptive analytics, clinical risk intervention and predictive analytics, waste and care variability reduction, automated external and internal reporting of patient data, standardised medical terms and patient registries and fragmented point solutions

BIG DATA STORAGE FOR AI/ML

A new class of applications in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL) are deployed on fast, tier1 storage systems for online processing, such as the Hadoop File System (HDFS) itself, but also fast file systems such as Weka.io, and applications such as Splunk, ELK and many others.

Scality RING is an optimal, massively scalable archive tier behind these tier1 systems, with S3 access for data movement between RING and Tier1.

 

BIG DATA AND THE FUTURE OF STORAGE MANAGEMENT

  • MANAGING GROWTH

    Unstructured data from multiple sources creates massive demands on storage.
  • PERFORMANCE

    Most data needs to be accessed online, to support rapid decision-making.
  • RESILIENCY

    Essential data must be stored and accessible for years, with durability and integrity
  • TRANSFORMATION

    Legacy, cloud native and analytics applications require data access.
  • MULTIPLE SILOS

    Managing multiple data silos, and support the new world of cloud applications.
  • HIGH COST

    Storing and managing petabytes of data is too costly today.
