Dealing With Big Data In A Virtualized World

Dealing with Big Data in a Virtualized World (And 6 Assets to Help You)

“Data really powers everything that we do.” – Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn.

Data has been described as the new oil, so important it is to modern business. The generation, storage and processing of more and more data has given rise to a whole new field of study, the simply, yet effectively named Big Data.

“Server consolidation is the most obvious, long-standing use case, but virtualization is like a Swiss army knife. You can use it in a number of different situations.”   – Raghu Raghuram, GM at VMware.

Virtualization is the other big development taking the world of business and technology by storm, and with the growth of cloud computing, this storm has become a hurricane.

To take full advantage of advances in technology, you need to know how to deal with Big Data in a virtualized world. The following six assets should be of help.

1. A Better Answer than RAID and Replication for Cloud Storage

The scale of storage expansion required by the cloud may be rendering traditional RAID and replication storage infrastructures obsolete. The latency introduced with large RAID rebuilds is unacceptable and the capacity, processing and bandwidth overhead these legacy systems need are just too costly. Dispersed Storage is the answer.

2. VMware vSphere Backup & Replication

This unique Virtual Backup Appliance (VBA) design makes the critical difference in providing a VMware backup solution that delivers the absolute best value in Virtual Backup and Replication. The offer comes with 15 days of free use.

3. Citrix XenServer Backup & Replication

If you are not a VMware customer but put your faith in Citrix, do not fret for here’s a VBA offer for you as well. Based on a 100% virtualized footprint, the VBA deploys and is managed directly from the XenServer hypervisor without requiring any physical servers or additional software.

4. Big Data – Success Requires Vision, Talent, and Technology

This informative white paper from EMC explains how Big Data can make a difference to businesses looking for a competitive edge – with their customers, their processes, their bottom lines and, most importantly, with growing the business.

5. Cloud Computing IaaS Performance Report

When selecting a Cloud provider, you should consider many factors: compatibility, performance, cost, security and more. While performance testing and benchmarking of cloud computing platforms is a complex task, this report does a good job in comparing the capabilities of major IaaS providers like Amazon and Rackspace.

6. Remote Data Replication: Combat Disasters and Optimize Business Operations

Offsite data replication is key to ensuring ongoing business operations, but it can be complex and costly, especially when performed over long distances. Join this discussion to discover how you can apply fast, cost effective and reliable remote replication that can:

  • Meet Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) by reducing remote replication times by up to 20 times

  • Reduce bandwidth costs and extend replication distances

  • Lower storage costs while increasing storage flexibility

  • Leverage emerging cloud and virtualization technologies for better offsite disaster recovery
