Big Data Retention
The Big Data Retention solution is designed to significantly reduce the costs of retaining big data, while helping to improve management for easy retrieval and analysis in organizations that leverage big data analytics to derive business value from their data. It integrates with existing analytics platforms as a front-end big data repository for large datasets or a backend archive. It also can serve as a standalone repository or as an analytics platform with Hadoop. Users can scale from storage and retention into more complex analytics, like the Dell Cloudera management platform, Apache Hadoop Solutions based on Dell PowerEdge C- and R- series servers, Force 10 networks, and the Dell Crowbar deployment toolkit. The solution combines Dell storage, including the DX Object Storage Platform, and RainStor database technology to help reduce the cost of retaining big data through data reduction, simplified data management and scalability, which can provide access to the data by standard SQL BI/analytics tools.
