Big Data and the Hardware that Loves It
Big Data, meet Big Hardware.
Enterprises looking at a tidal wave of massive data volumes with the advent of digital video, social networking and massive database files are seeing new means to keep their heads above water. But questions are starting to surface as to whether large, expensive hardware platforms are really the best way to approach the problem.
IBM made significant strides against Big Data this week with a revamped PureSystems platform kitted out with an advanced analytics engine geared to process petabytes of data within minutes. The company says this will enable enterprises to break down key business processes, such as marketing, sales and business operations and determine where and how they can be improved. The PureData System comes in three flavors: a transactional model designed to handle high volumes of extremely small data sets; an analytics model aimed at data warehousing and predictive analysis; and an operational analytics model that hones in on tasks like fraud detection and real-time change management. IBM also says the system is built on a streamlined hardware platform that can be deployed and operational within 24 hours.
