The Ideal Big Data Platform

The ideal Big Data platform has the ability to capture, store and analyse vast amounts of semi-structured and unstructured data either in real-time and /or through historical analysis.

A suitable platform offers secure, elastic and resilient data storage with unlimited capacity. It is easily deployed and scaled to adjust as your Big Data needs change.

It can collect and clean large amounts of unstructured data whilst managing, processing and analysing it without compromising on processing speed.

Data is always readily available for interrogation and is made visible through a well-designed user interface.

1. The Ingestion Layer

A primary function of the zenAptix Big Data Platform is to ingest huge amounts of un-structured and semi-structured data ad infinitum in a fast and cost effective manner for real-time data analytics and in order to store it for later use.

The zenAptix Ingestion Layer can ingest a variety of data streams, with different data-types, at an extremely high volume.

In addition, specific data changes can be monitored as the data is ingested. The system can then react to any change in real-time, for example through sending a notification or alert.

The Ingestion Layer is also the space in which real-time data analytics is done and presented as consolidated information in the Visualisation Layer from where value can be extracted.

2. The Storage Layer

The ability to persistently store and make available infinite amounts of data is central to any successful Big Data strategy.

The zenAptix Storage Layer stores and makes available semi- and un-structured data on a cosmic scale.

Its scalability is elastic in nature. This means that its storage capacity is easily and automatically scaled depending on and/or according to your data storage requirements.

The resilient nature of the Storage Layer ensures that it has the ability to recover immediately in case of disruptions, thereby providing seamless and continuous operation.

3. The Extraction Layer

The zenAptix Extraction Layer is the space from which data scientists extract and query the vast quantities of data stored ad infinitum.

The technology underpinning the Extraction Layer enables data scientists to query historical data by means of models and algorithms that they have developed in order to, for example, establish trends in space and time.

4. The Presentation Layer

The zenAptix Presentation Layer presents aggregated data from both the Ingestion and Extraction layers via different methods including heat maps, histograms, dials and graphs.

The Presentation Layer allows the end user to find value in the information presented and enables them to make more accurate predictions and informed decisions.
