Your organization is faced with the challenge of handling large quantities of unstructured data that is growing rapidly. This data is needed for use by more employees and a wide range of applications and workloads, including data analytics, which are increasingly important for the success of your business. These challenges, along with access difficulties, are preventing your business from gaining insights and driving business actions. Increased information sharing is easy with a data lake that enables integrated, multi-protocol support, resulting in easy information access and data sharing across your enterprise.
Although you’re managing less than 50 TB today, according to IDC you could be managing over 200 TB in 5 years. Enterprise data growth is best addressed by consolidating storage into one single central repository of persistent data — a data lake — that simplifies the IT architecture, is efficient, and scales as business needs change.
Ultimately, your organization’s data and technology should enable the business to do more, be more competitive, and be more successful. Achieving these goals requires a data lake architecture where data can reside at the right location for the business — whether that is in the data center, at the edge, or in the cloud.
