NEEDHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Cloud Standards Customer Council (CSCC) has published the Customer Cloud Architecture for Big Data and Analytics whitepaper. The new whitepaper describes how to harness cloud architectures to take advantage of big data analytics capabilities. Included are vendor-neutral best practices for hosting analytics solutions on cloud. The reference architecture whitepaper is free to access and can be downloaded here.
Big data technology increases the amount and variety of data that can be processed by analytics, providing a foundation for visualizations and insights that can significantly improve business operations. Using analytics reveals patterns, trends and associations in data that help an organization understand the behavior of the people and systems that drive its operation.
The architecture of an analytics cloud solution will likely evolve as the solution matures. Preliminary and proof-of-concept (POC) applications often start in public cloud environments where new resources can be acquired and evaluated quickly with a minimal procurement process. Hybrid cloud deployment is emerging as a preferred choice of customers who want to balance their requirements and costs. Critical data and processing remains in the enterprise data center, while other resources are deployed in public cloud environments. Processing resources can be further optimized with a hybrid topology that enables cloud analytics engines to work with on-premises data.
The Cloud Standards Customer Council will host a webinar on Thursday, July 23 from 11am - 12pm EDT to introduce the paper. To register for this complimentary webinar, click here.
