There are several important pieces to develop a foolproof strategy for gleaning all of the opportunities and insights possible from big data. The most vital is the accessibility and availability piece. If the data is nowhere to be found, not much else can happen. Combining the powers of both mobile and cloud, a new partnership is formed and outlined in the article, "ScaleArc, Global Cloud Network Team Up to Launch Database Infrastructure Software." This pieces comes from The Times of India.
Continuous application modifying has been a struggle for organizations operating with cloud databases as they scale. This technology makes a dent in that proglem.
The article continues its discussion of the new technology:
Customers can immediately begin using ScaleArc iDB v2.2 software to achieve instant horizontal scaling of MySQL database instances hosted within the Joyent SmartDataCenter and enable SQL-aware load balancing with higher availability. They can also take advantage of agentless transparent query caching with a single click, obtain real-time logging and analytics of all SQL queries and achieve a new level of SQL security.
While the technology discussed in this article appears to tackle many volume issues, the real magic of enabling insights from big data comes in the form of infrastructure solutions.
