As the agenda shifts from ways of gathering data to real-time processing of it, the epoch of big data is starting to wane. Presently, big data has turned into an asset which only supports the next-gen multi-cloud strategy, ML algorithms and real-time data analytics.
Tracing the recent activities, it can be concluded that the era of big data almost ended somewhere around June 5, this year when the announcement of Tom Reilly’s upcoming resignation from Cloudera made headlines and consequently market capitalization dropped. This underlines that the initial epoch of Hadoop-empowered Big Data has come to its doom.
Impressions Left Behind by Big Data
• It will be remembered for its functionality in enabling the commencement of social media dominance.
• The technology has brought fundamental changes in the mindset of companies in operating over the varied and voluminous set of data.
• Big Data has played an essential role in clarifying the value of analytic data, data quality and data governance for current evaluation of data as a major asset for organizations.
Looking at the broader picture here, we can put it in an optimistic way that possibly the era of big data is not dead but the embryonic generation of Hadoop-led big data has reached the stage of full bloom where its part is quite well-established in any organizations. Reaching the age of such maturity, big data no longer is a member of hyped-cycle of infinite growth and has to settle down with definite role.
The Necessity To Adopt A Multi-Cloud Strategy
In an ambitious organization, it is necessary to back constant transformation with time. The business objectives should drive cloud strategies as they are data-gravitated, aid business controlling and are future proof. The multi-cloud strategy is capable of matching up the current and futuristic demands of a business.
Multi-cloud strategy delivers flexibility to execute modern data management and analytics duty anywhere. Its ability to shift one’s workloads to the cloud environment of choice – either public or private – avoids provider lock-in situation and user can avail the perks of portability. Such public clouds are agile, elasticated and easy to use. Multi-cloud configuration also eliminates silos while integrating metadata, security, and governance across the varied ecosystem.
Benefits of adoption
The multi-cloud platform can mix various delivery models and enables the user to choose from an accelerated range of services to develop customized solutions for their organizations. The user can employ mixed delivery models like SaaS, PaaS, and Iaas. It will not only enhance the capability for existing applications but also of the new one and make the decision suitable for apt business goal. The user is free to use a combination of platforms such as AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, VMware, and many others and this mixture will set up a base for new business possibilities and functions.
Also, multi-cloud adoption makes data management flexible and different industries require different types of data. While managing data on multiple clouds the user can become confident of his data being available and secure even if the host fails. The multi-cloud platform facilitates with low latency and enables quick data transfer across different platforms and governs the workloads and services.
The existing single cloud platforms often cause limited flexibility, prolonged concept proofs, delayed decision and expensive outcome – kind of issues which would further result in slowing down the business operations. On the other hand, multi-cloud deployment enables the user to receive full control of their systems such as authority and power to switch their cloud platforms with ease.
Talking about the costlier and expensive outcomes, multi-cloud platforms optimize cost-effective results for businesses. Employing the multi-cloud strategy, user can use his apps anytime into the cloud and develop strengthened flexibility at a lower cost. User can easily shift his workloads across various clouds while reducing the downtime.
The industry is in the process of developing all variety of clouds (public, private or hybrid) enabling organizations to gladly embrace the virtues of multi-cloud serviced management to match up to their business demands. While adopting the multi-cloud strategy, companies can garner a wide spectrum of perks and simultaneously avail the facilities of matured big data operation. The experts are quite confident that multi-cloud is here to stay and companies should proceed for its embracement, while operating over big data technology, without giving it any second thought.
