Big Data Doesn’t Seem So Big Anymore

Terracotta BigMemory Max, a recognized leader of in-memory data management solutions, is changing the way that enterprises analyze big data. How? By storing data in a server’s machine memory. This change makes big data analysis more reliable and much faster. On the traditional hard-disk-based data management model, analysis of big data could have taken hours or days to process, but BigMemory Max whittles that down to minutes or even seconds! Crucial business decisions can be made faster and more accurately when big data is processed in-memory.

BigMemory Max also safeguards data by copying it across multiple servers. Data loss won’t occur if one server fails because a complete copy of the data sits on another server. BigMax Memory can maintain an uptime of 99.999 percent with this data mirroring method.

But wait—it gets even better. The Intel® Xeon™ processor E7 v2 family was engineered for systems that require an uptime of 99.999 percent. Combining BigMemory Max with servers built on the Intel® Xeon™ processor E7 v2 allows enterprises to follow the scale-up model, which helps reduce power use, cooling costs, and complexity.

Servers running BigMemory Max and the Intel® Xeon™ processor E7 v2 family help decrease overall total cost of ownership (TCO) without sacrificing the benefits of a large cluster running on lower-powered servers. This allows enterprises to expand their big data horizons, changing impossible or improbable analyses into very manageable scenarios.
