The IDC DataSphere and StorageSphere forecasts revealed that the amount of data created and replicated experienced unusually high growth in 2020 due to the dramatic increase in the number of people working, learning, and entertaining themselves from home.
However, less than 2% of this new data was saved and retained into 2021 – the rest was either ephemeral (created or replicated primarily for the purpose of consumption) or temporarily cached and subsequently overwritten with newer data.
IDC says organisations should consider preparing to store more data now, as they seek to achieve digital transformation milestones and improve business metrics by accelerating innovative data analytics initiatives.
Cloudera announced the successful completion of the Quality Assurance Test Suite (QATS) certification of Dell EMC PowerScale/Isilon 8.2.2 on Cloudera Data Platform Private Cloud.
The Quality Assurance Test Suite (QATS) process is Cloudera’s highest certification level, designed to rigorously test software file systems, next-gen hardware and containers across Cloudera’s product suite. The tests ensure that solutions are validated for a comprehensive suite of use cases and deliver high performance, even under rigorous loads.
Customers leveraging Dell EMC PowerScale with Cloudera Data Hub or Hortonworks Data Platform will now benefit from expanded support in migrating to Cloudera Data Platform, the industry’s first enterprise data cloud.
This certification keeps pace with the top trends helping businesses stay agile and close to their data, including: the decoupling of storage and compute, the rapid adoption of virtualized and containerized deployments, and the rising popularity of object stores as the underlying storage layer.
Cloudera Data Platform on Dell EMC PowerScale helps businesses incorporate shared storage configurations best suited for flexibility, scalability, cost efficiency and anytime, anywhere data access.
“Asia Pacific enterprises are at the forefront of digital transformation. Many are responding to the rapid accumulation of data by separating compute and storage to optimize scalability and better harness data insights,” said Derek Judge, head of channels & alliances for Cloudera APAC.
