IoT and DDoS

IoT and DDoS will force you to interact with Internet Big Data.

Big Data isn't just inside your data centers. Big Data is flowing into your network from all over the Internet due to sensors that monitor and control far-flung assets, facilities and processes. In addition, the ever-growing presence of botnets and other Internet predation means that you are probably already sustaining DDoS attacks, whether you know it or not.

Plan for both IoT and DDoS inbound traffic to increase dramatically. Train networking staff on Internet routing so that they can better manage (and mitigate) legitimate and attack vector traffic coming in from the Internet.

Big Data generated by retail, social media, and the Internet of Things (IoT), as well as the challenges of storing and analyzing such data, are now commonplace ideas within the IT landscape. What is less common is the discussion about Big Data's impact on networks, both today and in the future.

Understanding the interplay between Big Data and networks, including the Internet, is an important part of planning your approach to network architecture and network operations management.

In this slideshow, Kentik has identified five ways Big Data is changing how networks work.
