Bye-Bye Enterprise Storage
October 19, 2015
Storage is a main component of the enterprise system. Silos store data and eventually the entire structure transforms into a legacy system, but BusinessWire says in “MapR Extends Support For SAS To Deliver Big Data Storage Independence” it is time to say good-bye to old enterprise storage. MapR is trying to make enterprise storage obsolete with its new extended service support for SAS, a provider of business software and services. The new partnership between allows advanced analytics with easy data preparation and integration in legacy systems, improved security, data compliance, and assurance of service level agreements.
The entire goal is to allow SAS and MapR clients to have better flexibility for advanced analytics within Hadoop as well as to help customers harvest the most usefulness our of their data.
Here is a rundown of the partnership between SAS and MapR:
“The collaboration makes available the full scope of technologies in the SAS portfolio, including SAS® LASR™ Analytic Server, SAS Visual Analytics, SAS High-Performance Analytics, and SAS Data Loader for Hadoop. Complete MapR integration delivers security and full POSIX compliance for use in “share everything architectures,” as well as enables SAS Visual Analytics to easily and securely access all data. With SAS Data Loader for Hadoop, users can prepare, cleanse and integrate data inside MapR for improved performance and then load that data in-memory into SAS LASR for visualization or analysis, all without writing code.”
Breaking away from legacy systems with old onsite storage is one of the new trends for enterprise systems. Legacy systems are clunky, don’t necessary comply with new technology, and have slow information retrieval. A new enterprise system using SAS and MapR’s software will last for some time, until the new trend buzzes through town.
