Big Storage for Big Data: The Right Storage Approach for the Job

Capturing and analyzing information are only part of the big data equation. Businesses must store ingested data in a format that is accessible and resilient, yet still economical. Alongside structured machine-generated data, businesses must cope with petabytes of unstructured data, from emails to photos to video – each with its own needs and challenges.

Businesses that aren’t currently feeling the pain will not remain immune. As analytics raises the table stakes of business agility, the data crush will affect everyone. Should businesses but build a storage system from scratch, use a pre-integrated solution, buy an object storage solution, or outsource their storage to a cloud provider? Should they choose only one path? What factors should be considered?
