Why Storage for Big Data is Hard

2:30 – 3:30 p.m., Thursday, March 26
Cooley Building, G906

We’re now inundated with data of ever increasing volume, velocity and variety. Managing all this data is a vast and confounding challenge. In this presentation, Neeman will examine one facet of this problem — how to provide large scale, long term storage affordably — to determine the challenges and how they can be met. He will look at a novel business model, combined with one of the oldest storage technologies in computing history, that together can enable “cold” datasets to be maintained for a decade or more, at the lowest cost to researchers of any storage technology on the market today, but with higher reliability and availability than more expensive technologies.
