Can you handle Big Data?

Big Data is the latest industry buzzword. It's just another way of saying you as a network manager are being inundated with data and you better figure out a way to manage, secure and analyze it.

A survey by LogLogic showed that 49% of organizations that responded were somewhat or very concerned about managing big data, with another 38% not even sure what big data is. One expert said the key to controlling the data is log management.

Larry Warnock, CEO of Big Data encryption and key management specialist Gazzang, used a novel analogy of what is being done with Big Data. “It’s like a giant fishing net dragging the bottom. There’s big fat tuna and swordfish in there, but also mussels and lobsters and flounder. They’re just scraping data and they don’t know yet what they’re going to do with it."
