Considerations for Owning versus Outsourcing Data Center Physical Infrastructure


When faced with the decision of upgrading an existing data center, building new, or leasing space in a retail colocation data center, there are both quantitative and qualitative differences to consider. The 10-year TCO may favor upgrading or building over outsourcing; however, this paper demonstrates that the economics may be overwhelmed by a business’ sensitivity to cash flow, cash crossover point, deployment timeframe, data center life expectancy, regulatory requirements, and other strategic factors. This paper discusses how to assess these key factors to help make a sound decision.

Streaming Data and the Fast Data Stack


Big data is data at rest; fast data is streaming data, or data in motion. A stack is emerging across verticals and industries for building applications that process these high velocity streams of data. This new stack, the fast data stack, has a unique purpose: to grab real-time data and output recommendations, decisions, and analyses in milliseconds.

This white paper will look at the emerging fast data stack through the lens of streaming data to provide architects, CTOs, and developers with fundamental architectural elements of the new fast data stack: a LAMP stack for streaming data applications.

The Operational Data Lake: Your On Ramp to Big Data


Companies recognize the need to integrate big data into their real-time analytics and operations, but this poses a lot of technical and resource challenges. Meanwhile, those organizations that have operational data stores (ODSs) in place find that, while useful, they are expensive to scale. The ODS gives real-time visibility into operational data. While more cost-effective than a data warehouse, it uses outdated scaling technology, and performance upgrades require very specialized hardware. Plus, ODSs just can't handle the volume of data that has become a matter of fact for businesses today.

This white paper discusses the concept of the operational data lake, and its potential as an on-ramp to big data by upgrading outdated ODSs. Companies that are building a use case for big data, or those considering an upgrade to their ODS, may benefit from this stepping stone. With a Hadoop relational database management system (RDBMS), companies can expand their big data practices at their own pace.
