Big Data

Using big data gives organizations insight into their operations and industry that were unparalleled just a decade ago, and we can count on that growth continuing well into the future. 

The challenge: Building and managing an enterprise-grade big data cluster 

Data sets continue to grow both in size and complexity, driving the need for high performance data analysis systems. There are many database and analytical software packages available today, yet implementing them into a reliable enterprise-ready system remains a challenge. Once big data projects move beyoned the pilot stage into production, there is a need for end-to-end management solutions to keep them running at their best. 

"We have access to a tremendous amount of existing technology in traditional HPC clusters, and will use the Bright-powered big data cluster as a test bed to see how different technology might make our simulations easier to implement or speed up processing."

-Kevin Shinpaugh, VBI
