Why Storage For Big Data?

The universal goal of data managers is to remove silos, run analytics on structured and unstructured data, de-duplicate and consolidate existing data across platforms, and overcome compliance challenges by knowing what's transpiring across the organization. And while the cost of storing data is trending downwards it doesn't keep up with the rate of data growth.


IT can better achieve these goals by leveraging EMC ViPR Software Defined Storage (SDS).  ViPR to reduces data silos and cost effectively manages data growth. Additionally, through EMC ViPR SDS or EMC Isilon scale-out NAS, you quickly analyze data already residing in storage arrays through native HDFS protocol support.
