RECENT BIG DATA QUOTE:
"There are two kinds of Big Data: Big Data (for analytics) and Big Unstructured Data.
The new paradigm that will help us store massive amounts of unstructured data is Object Storage. Object Storage systems are uniformly scalable pools of storage that are accessible through a REST interface. Files – objects – are dumped into the pool and an identifier is kept to locate the object when it is needed. Applications that are designed to run on top of object storage will use these identifiers through the REST protocol. A good analogy is parking your car Valet vs. self park. When you self park you have to remember the lot, the floor, the aisle etc (file system); with Valet you get a receipt when you give your keys and you will later use that receipt to get your car back. Big Data for analytics is a paradigm that became popular in the previous decade. "
