Gigaom Research webinar: Big storage for big data: the right storage approach for the job

Capturing and analyzing information are only part of the big data equation. Businesses must store ingested data in a format that is accessible and resilient, yet still economical. Alongside structured machine-generated data, businesses must cope with petabytes of unstructured data, from emails to photos to video – each with its own needs and challenges.

Businesses that aren’t currently feeling the pain will not remain immune. As analytics raises the table stakes of business agility, the data crush will affect everyone. Should businesses but build a storage system from scratch, use a pre-integrated solution, buy an object storage solution, or outsource their storage to a cloud provider? Should they choose only one path? What factors should be considered?

In this webinar, our panel will address these topics:

  • How will the volume of captured data grow and what problems will that cause?
  • What specific requirements do different types of data bring?
  • What are the storage options and ideal use cases for each?
  • What is the total cost of ownership (TCO) factors associated with each option?

Speakers include:

  • Ashar Baig, Research Director, Gigaom Research
  • Ben Woo, Managing Director, Neuralytix, Inc.
  • Marc Staimer, President & Chief Dragon Slayer, Dragon Slayer Consulting
  • Russ Kennedy, Senior Vice President of Product Strategy and Customer Solutions, Cleversafe
