5 Big Ways Big Data Is Changing the IT Network

    Cloud Networking

    Cloud networking expertise is increasing in importance.

    Data is becoming so big, and periodic batch processing is frequent enough in nature that it's increasingly infeasible to equip private and on-premises data centers with the capacity to handle the peaks of demand and gain a reasonable return on capital. This and the general rise of public cloud and SaaS applications are creating a hybrid cloud reality. Along with that comes the necessity for greater cloud networking expertise.

    Understand how you are connected to your cloud providers. If you don't have redundant Internet connections via different ISPs (multi-homing), you should strongly consider doing so. If your business is large enough and critical applications are increasingly residing on public clouds, you should also consider developing a direct peering plan for your Internet traffic.

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.
