Big Data is pervasive in the enterprise today, and it is only going to get bigger. For example, IT departments are adopting longer retention times for saved data (six months or longer) which, in turn, requires expansion of their existing networked data storage. And with mandated retention policies like Sarbanes-Oxley to account for, end users are also required to capture every data packet that is transacted and retrieve historical data for analysis without any potential data packet loss.
Organizations need to prepare themselves by expanding their network bandwidth to make their data center ‘Big Data’ ready. They also need to take steps to secure their networks. As the volume of networked data grows, data leaks, security breaches, and packet loss are inevitable.
