A Better Big Data Ecosystem with Hadoop and Hitachi Content Platform (Part1)
This blog explores the challenges customers are facing with storing data long term in Hadoop, and discusses what the Hitachi Content Platform team is doing to help our customers solve these challenges with the help of Alluxio.
Data is at the center of our digital world and for years Hadoop has been the go-to data processing platform because it is fast and scalable. While Hadoop has solved the data storage and processing problem for the last ~10 years, it achieves this by scaling storage and compute capacity in parallel. As a result, Hadoop environments have continued to expand compute capacity well beyond their needs as more and more of the storage is consumed by older, inactive data.
