Big Data Storage. Solved.
Creating Value with Data
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. Big data stores must keep vast amounts of data, in a variety of formats (documents, logs, feeds, media and more) – and make them accessible for analytics and multiple processing purposes.
BIG Data STORAGE for Analytics
Data lakes are commonly used by analytics applications such as Hadoop, Spark and the ecosystem tools (Hive, Impala and more). 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.
Big Data 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.
The Future of Big Data Management
Unstructured data from multiple sources creates massive demands on storage.
Data needs to be accessed online, to support rapid decision-making.
Data must be stored and accessible for years, with durability and integrity.
Legacy, cloud native and analytics applications require data access.
Managing multiple data silos, and support the new world of cloud applications.
Storing and managing petabytes of data is too costly today.
Scality value proposition
RING supports growth of data lakes to dozens of Petabytes without bound.
RING data is always online, with high throughput for access by 1000’s of simultaneous users and applications.
