The management, analysis, storage and transfer of Big Data has become the focus of many enterprises as they struggle to find ways to control, and potentially benefit from the data that they are capturing at the operational end of the business.
The data explosion has occurred as more and more devices and servers are being deployed to capture increasing quantities of data.
These devices include tools that provide covert monitoring data, remote telemetry data, software logs, operational performance data, through to the human generated repositories of corporate portals, social networks and file shares. The distributed enterprise has the effect of scattering these Big Data repositories over the every continent, and to places where network connectivity has the effect of isolating the remote site where the networks are often disconnected and challenging . iOra has worked with many enterprises to remove the challenging network as a barrier for transferring Big Data back to the corporate hub for management and analysis.
Not only does iOra have the capability to replicate installed and virtualised web portals e.g. Lotus Notes, Microsoft SharePoint, but also has the option of being able to replicate raw file sets and directories of data using the world leading Epsilon compression technology.
