Most people associate big data with the need to store vast amounts of data, and they’re correct. However, big data can also be thought of as data in motion. All of your valuable data doesn’t do you much good if it’s just sitting there on a drive. Instead, you need regular, efficient access to it in order to analyze it as you capture it. And you need access on demand at a later time. Big data also needs to be fast data. How can you achieve this? Modernization!
Modernization will help you increase storage capacity and performance, while reducing cost per gigabyte. Modern storage systems that utilize a combination of flash drives and traditional hard drives create a solution that’s simultaneously high-performance and high capacity, with lower cost-per-I/O and cost per-gigabyte stored.
