Big data has been huge in terms of supplier hype for the last couple of years. And indeed around one third (33%) of those who answered the survey have a big data project on the go or plan to expand it. Of course, that means the remaining 67% don’t have big data projects, but 11% plan to start them and 24% will evaluate it. That could mean most organisations will have big data projects in place in the next couple of years. That could have a knock-on effect in terms of storage projects to support big data, whether that be hyperscale combined server/storage infrastructure using analytics engines like Hadoop, scale-out NAS, HPC storage or object storage.
