When it comes to modern big data systems and related cloud computing platforms, you’d think that storage capacity, processing power and network bandwidth would be the primary elements of an efficient system. It’s becoming increasingly clear, however, that’s not the case, especially as more businesses emphasize data acceleration.
Data acceleration essentially refers to the rate or speed at which large troves of data can be ingested, analyzed, processed, organized and converted to actionable insights. Speeding up these processes, as you might expect, is the acceleration aspect. More importantly, because there is so much that goes into an efficient data system, it’s more of a concept that involves all hardware, software and related tools.
