To date the hype about Big Data has come from the perception that Big Data is the next frontier in gaining deeper insight into the customer, or an organization’s business. In the next decade, it is hoped (or hyped) that Big Data will be key to finding ways to better analyze, monetize, and capitalize on these information streams and integrate these insights into the business. It will be the age of Big Data.
But where else will Big Data have an impact?
For IT departments, Big Data represents a new set of requirements and supporting infrastructures, and will require a well thought-out approach to the datacenter network. The network will serve as the key backbone for the special communications and processing needs of Big Data. In preparation for this new era, Network Administrators should begin now to proactively plan for how to mitigate the latency and switch capacity issues that will arise from Big Data’s special needs.
Please join us for this presentation as we explore the implications of Big Data on the network.
