Big data impact on storage infrastructure


In this video interview, Ovum senior analyst  Tim Stammers discusses what to consider when looking at storage infrastructure to handle the large datasets and the real-time access requirements of big data.

Tim Stammers warns: "There is no clear consensus in the industry in what to sell customers." Some suppliers are offering object storage, clustered, scalable NAS or block-level SANs. "All have their own advantages but it all depends on your environment," Stammers adds.

IT managers will also see suppliers selling big-data appliances with integrated storage, which improve performance, but may cause businesses issues when the data needs to be shared.
