Converged Data Management Unwrapped – Instant Data Access

Now that the Rubrik team has returned from an energizing trip to VMworld Barcelona and TechTarget’s Backup 2.0 Road Tour, it’s time to peel the onion a bit further on Converged Data Management in the fourth installment of this deep dive series. In this post, I’ll put the magnifying glass up against Instant Data Access – which is the ability to see and interact with data in a global and real-time manner – to better understand why it’s a critical property in the architecture shown below: First, let’s take a step back. There’s a lot of hemming and hawing on the Internet about data lakes, big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), and so forth. The rub is that data is growing (exponentially), is largely unstructured, and there’s no way to put our hands around it in any meaningful way without machine learning and a plethora of automation. ImageNet is a great example of this in a real world, practical format. This has led to some really nifty architectures being crafted to deal with large data sets and a rise in the popularity in storage systems that are eventually consistent, such as object storage clustering, rather than strongly consistent as typically…
