Data is increasingly strategic to organisations of all sizes and industry, but the sheer volume of data can be overwhelming. Hadoop has emerged as a powerful distributed system for processing and analysing large data sets. The Hadoop File System (HDFS), which manages the storage layer, provides a shared nothing model that addresses many of the cost and complexity challenges of traditional SAN and NAS solutions. However, it does introduce its own complexities around cost-effective scaling and data availability.

Download this white paper to discover a solution that combines the simplicity and economics of DAS with the scalability and data protection of shared storage, helping to reduce costs and eliminate operational complexity.
