T-Systems’ big data offering is based on an efficiently and dynamically scalable big data platform in the cloud. It forms the basis for developing and providing innovative and integral solutions within the big data environment. Easy integration and flexible data management are essential for handling the huge amounts of data generated in the context of M2M communication, Internet of Things (IoT) and digital connection.
Big data platform based on Hadoop
There are no limits in terms of quantity and type of data source. To integrate and aggregate huge amounts of data with different sizes, T-Systems utilizes the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) as the foundation for its big data platform. The framework is suitable for the collection, backup and processing of huge, unstructured amounts of data. At the same time, Hadoop is expandable up to any number of computers (nodes). That makes the platform highly flexible and enables enormous storage capacity up to petabyte ranges.
Extension by real-time analytics
Furthermore, T-Systems offers real-time analytics based on SAP HANA. The In-Memory database records all data directly in the main memory (RAM). This permits an extremely quick access and analysis in real-time. Both solutions will be combined to a comprehensive big data platform for smart data management – depending on requirements. For the customer this means, regardless if volume, variety or velocity of data is the challenge – T-Systems has a suitable solution for optimal aggregation, storage and analysis.
