In my last blog, I mentioned a conversation I had with my boss about Big Data, and what businesses and organizations are doing to prepare for it. The next concern is how you manage your structured and unstructured data.
Derrick Harris from gigaom.com recently wrote an article describing how the acquisition of Autonomy and Vertica has positioned HP to manage Big Data. The underlying theme, with these two software platforms, is to not only improve management but also to make understanding the data analytics easier.
With the analytics issues resolved, now the concern facing many IT staffs is: “Where do I store all this information?” With such complexity surrounding storage growth of structured and unstructured data, using a managed storage service allows you to effectively manage that growth through simple, scalable, and affordable data storage.
HP currently manages more than 100 PB of online data and more than 400PB of backed-up data. With HP Storage Management Services, you’re able to significantly reduce over-provisioning while optimizing storage utilization, reduce capital purchases, and ensure a smooth transfer of control with minimal disruption and reduced risk.
With storage costs decreasing, now is a great time to explore HP Storage Services and see how we can help you create a plan for your Big Data.
