The Impact of Unstructured Data On Your Business

Generation of digital content is growing at breakneck speed. The development of new technologies available for the genetics, life science, broadcasting, video surveillance industries and the preservation of the planet are directly confronted to find solutions answering these needs.
 

6 BIG challenges are a game changer in the Data Management landscape  : 

  • Explosion of unstructured data 
  • Accessing data quickly and effortlessly
  • Longer-term data retention policies
  • Increased absolute data security and integrity,
  • Protection against ransomware
  • Environmental and cost considerations prioritizing reduced storage energy consumption

How Data management can help Enterprise to manage their Unstructured Data?

First, start with some definitions to better understand how processes can help an organization to control unstructured data.

Data Management is one process that describes the data you expect to acquire or generate during the course of a project, how you will manage, describe, analyze, and store those data, and what mechanisms you will use at the end of your project to share and preserve your data.

Organizations must keep in mind how storage management has changed in recent years. Today, it is already in place in industries such as research center, or production company

A Data Management Plan (DMP) is a written document that describes the data you expect to acquire or generate during the course of a research project, how you will manage, describe, analyze, and store those data, and what mechanisms you will use at the end of your project to share and preserve your data.

You may have already considered some or all of these issues concerning your research project, but writing them down helps you formalize the process, identify weaknesses in your plan, and provide you with a record of what you intend(ed) to do.

 

Some industries are pioneer in the adoption of enhanced data management process

WHICH INDUSTRIES ARE DIRECTLY CONCERNED BY THIS ?

 

Research Center

In case of Research Project it's, this methodology is already Well-Known and use.  The Data Manager Officer needs software to help him in their day-to-day stuff to be sure that his data management plan is well manage. Data management is best addressed in the early stages of a research project, but it is never too late to develop a data management plan.

Broadcasting - Media Production - VOD

For these industries, better the contents producers are organised better the cycle of production, delivery and the quality are. The news players in these market create their own process to make sure that all of their partner ecosystem bring the same quality for each production. Move elected data to secondary storage tier to decrease the capacity of primary storage in keeping the access of your data online.

And even others

Other Enterprises or Organisations can also impact by these requirements such like Government or Weather Institutes....

It's a new way to organize your data, where the needs for research and traceability are highlighted

3-2-1 protocol

  • 3 verified copies 
  • 2 type of Media -> LTO & Disk need to use
  • 2 type of Storage format to battle to reduce risk of dust - humidity - heat. ...)
  • 1 separated Geo Localisation
lock

Define your protection plan

  • multiple copy of each content
  • stored in  multiple destinations
  • on different media (disk, LTFS LTO Tapes...)

Define your Verification Plan

Don't forget to check each archive copy ! It's certainly the most important thing to keep in mind.  Use for the checksum to be sure your data are the same between the source and the destination.

 

fingerprint

Each copy - same checksum

  • Generate checksum for each file at the source and at the destination.
  • Compare both calculated checksum.
  • Different checksum integrity are available : MD5 - XXHASH64BE.
security

Keep the chain of custody

With the task report and the file processed list, make sure to keep the custody for each task you run into Nodeum.
