The big daddy of Big Data: DataDirect Networks

SSG-NOW Subscription Content

If there is any company that Big Data is tailored for, it's DataDirect Networks. That’s because DataDirect has been doing Big Data for years, at least that is what they told us at DDN's Analyst & Influencer Summit in Boston recently. And, I believe it. I've seen Big Data ‘the DDN way’ in use at a number of customers in the past several years. The problem is, we didn't know it was Big Data then or call it that until someone pinned the Big Data name to it and made it the next big, big thing to pursue. Everyone is talking Big Data these days, just like they have romanced about cloud and convergence. Everyone is scrambling to wrap their hardware around Big Data. Only a few, though, have been successful so far in telling their stories.
