The Industry opines that cloud can be a valuable model to support an organisation’s big data strategy. From a macro view, to holistically manage big data, Hitachi Data Systems proposes a new model comprising three key components: Infrastructure Cloud, Content Cloud and Information Cloud that builds on existing IT investments to provide a single virtualisation platform for all data.
Infrastructure Cloud, the physical infrastructure, which Hitachi’s (via the Content and Information Cloud) and third-party applications run on. This includes computers, networking, storage, and virtual resources with inherent security, and the management software to orchestrate both physical and virtual resource commissioning, ongoing management, and decommissioning. This infrastructure facilitates fast, sophisticated Insight and perfectly meets the requirements of ‘volume’ and ‘velocity’.
Content Cloud – a well-managed software and hardware stores and searches both structured and unstructured content, thus making sense of the ‘variety’ of big data. Hitachi storage solutions enable the IT teams to manage all data types in heterogeneous environments.
Information Cloud – an advanced engines and tools analyse, visualise and repurpose both structured and unstructured content with advanced systems management capabilities to extract the ‘value’ of big data.
Vivekanand Venugopal, Vice President and General Manager of Hitachi data Systems India said, “While leveraging the three cloud forms, we are also investing in technologies that would help in leveraging the big data trend.”
The thrust areas for Hitachi includes:
• Applying decades of expertise in vertical industries to give the organizations the real-time information, useful analytics and decisions, and automated and integrated technologies
• Integrating infrastructure, content, and information with vertical industry applications to help the organizations turn the data into valuable business insights
