Big Data Analytics


It’s no trade secret. Companies need to make faster and more informed decisions to get the next big breakthrough to market. Did you know DDN customers report 400% to 500% performance improvement in their SAS, Informatica, and other key workflows?

Don’t split your infrastructure to speed individual analytics processes.  Consolidate for faster performance, less copy time, and fewer copies to manage so overall time to insight is significantly reduced. With more powerful data access, raise your per core throughput for analytics applications for significantly lower cost of infrastructure. Versus Enterprise SAN Infrastructure, DDN solutions for Big Data Analytics tend to be significantly more cost effective on both CAPEX and OPEX, and can reduce per-core software licensing costs by up to 4/5, which in many cases easily covers the entire cost of the data management infrastructure many times over.

“With our SAS GRID solution we achieved 452% faster workflows across the board—some applications were even higher. We also went from over 100 [SAS] servers to 16 for the entire enterprise.”—John Eubanks, Systems Engineer V, Fannie Mae
