Meeting the Challenge of Unstructured Data Growth

Unstructured data growth is far outpacing storage budgets, driven by larger resolutions, larger file sizes of video and digital imagery generated for business and entertainment content, scientific research, machine learning, and other high-tempo applications. This data is exponentially bigger than traditional databasesand given the sheer volume and velocity of incoming datatraditional storage solutions can’t keep up.   

Further, this data has a ‘lifecycle’ or a workflow – where you first need to capture raw data that is created at high speeds where it can be protected and organized. Then your team of experts and solutions need to collaboratively refine that raw content and generate insights to arrive at your unique, highly valuable result – a movie, an advertisement, a scientific result or analysis – where high-speed collaboration, iteration, and sharing across sites and teams is essential. Lastly, this data must be protected and preserved for new insight and discovery – at low cost and often indefinitely. All of these unique challenges require a software platform built for this class of data.
