Making Room in the Data Center for Big Data and IoT
An organization that’s serious about implementing big data or IoT projects will need to consider what demands those undertakings will place on data center infrastructure. Given the value of predictive analytics, for example, corporate leaders may be pushing their organizations to implement big data projects. How, though, do IT teams make those things happen? There simply isn’t a consensus about the required infrastructure for IoT or big data projects. Certain projects will consume vast amounts of resources while others will be more manageable. This chapter explains how to develop a big data plan and how to build or adapt an infrastructure that’s flexible enough to accommodate both big data and IoT initiatives -- without going too far overboard.
