Storage

Use case: Red Hat Gluster Storage for big data and analytics

Overview

Store, integrate, and analyze data at petabyte scale

Big data is both a gift and a curse.

All the data you collect holds the key to valuable business insights that can lead to competitive advantage. But the growth of big data and the Internet of Things (IoT) are straining traditional storage systems. Most businesses struggle to access and analyze such massive amounts of data.

According to Gartner, "through 2015, 85% of Fortune 500 organizations will be unable to exploit big data for competitive advantage." How can you be one of the other 15%?

  • Create an agile, cost-effective environment to use new data analytics functionality.
  • Easily find and access all your data from a single enterprise repository.
  • Preserve traditional data warehousing investments.
  • Take advantage of the rapid innovation inherent in open source communities.
  • Employ open, software-defined storage to rapidly scale for your data storage needs.”
