One response to “Big Data needs Big Collection and Big Execution”

  1. Ryan Geyer


    I agree that in order for big data to be useful to an organization, the source if input data has to be constantly updated, and the “big data” reports need to be frequently consumed. That’s the challenge for the business to solve and some organizations handle that better than others.

    I would suggest that for big data to really work, it makes the most sense in a private or hybrid IaaS environment where you can keep the CPU processing power “close” to the actual data. Either by having them physically in the same data center (private cloud) or by having a dedicated network connection between your databases and that processing power, such as AWS direct connect, or Rackspace RackConnect. That solves the problem at least of how to get the groceries “shipped” to kitchen, then back to the dinner table.
